Scouter R.S. is the Advisor of a new Venturing crew in Memphis, Tenn. He is not aware of many high adventure opportunities in his area and asks for help in finding activities that will interest and challenge his Venturers.
E.A. says his troop’s Scoutmaster was reluctant to start a Venture patrol because he feared it would reduce the number of available boy leaders. How, he asks, do you convince Scoutmasters that Venture patrols keep older Scouts in Scouting?
Scouter S.C.’s troop tries to keep older Scouts busy teaching skills to younger boys, but a few just want to hang out with their friends. He’s looking for suggestions to keep these older Scouts engaged in the troop program.
