Venture Crew 2298 is also chartered through St. Francis, and many of our male members have gone through Troop 298 and earned their Eagle Scout rank. Instead of focusing on rank advancement and basic outdoor skills, we focus on having fun and enjoying the outdoors, challenging ourselves mentally and physically, and participating in activities that interest us. Males and females ages 14-21 are welcome to join our program as venturers, and adults are welcome to join as crew advisors. Even if you do not have many outdoor skills or do not have experience in the scouting program, do not let that stop you from giving Crew 2298 a try. Since we do not follow a strict meeting schedule, please contact Crew President Leo Cheshire at for more information regarding upcoming events and the possibility of joining the crew.
