In my District we have 4 Venturing Crews and 1 Sea Scout Ship One of the crews was an Explorer Post (EMT training) that switched to a Venturing Crew a few years ago and pretty much does its own thing. The Sea Scout Ship is pretty healthy and active The two other crews will combining into one crew and are wondering if my son’s crew might what to also combine with them into one crew. The 2 crews combining have only 3 or 4 youth each and neither have enough adults to recharter as a separate crew. My son’s crew has 5 or 6 youth on paper but only 2 or 3 active. We have enough adults to recharter as a crew but realize we need more youth members. The CC of one of the old crews has said that they would be the CC of the combined crew. They are a DE for another district in our council. If we do combine we know we would have to switch meeting nights but no decision has been made where the combined crews will meet. Our Crew Advisor is reaching out to the youth members of the crew to see what their thoughts are on combining. What would be your concerns if you were to combine the 3 crews? Or would you stay as a separate crew and put a big push into a recruitment drive?
