As a Venturer, I promise to do my duty to God and help strengthen America, to help others, and to seek truth, fairness, and adventure in our world.
Unconventional CrewsThe following is a compilation of testimonials from members of Venturing crews with unusual interests. Crews who do not have a Ranger-based program but are specialized in some area of interest are considered "unconventional." These statements may lend useful ideas to anyone who is looking for a unique approach to starting a Venturing Crew. If you are a member of a crew with a unique interest or you know of a crew with such a focus please submit your information to email@example.com.
Crew 47, out of Peabody, MA, is a Ham Radio crew. While they still do outdoorsy things, and are currently working on
their outdoor bronze and ranger awards, almost all of the crew members are licensed amateur radio operators. They
bring radio equipment with them while camping, and see what faraway countries they can contact. They also provide a
public service, serving on camp staffs and camporee staffs, assisting with parking logistics, health and welfare, and
will usually demonstrate the many aspects of the hobby to non-hams.
