Although recommended because they are good for hiking and have zip off bottoms, they are not required for Crew meetings or regaular activities. The actual “Class A” for traveling and meeting purposes is the green venturing shirt and either jeans or gray pants or shorts.
For special ceremonies and training such as NYLT, the actual Venturing pants are required.

If is preferred that any incoming Boy Scouts be either Life rank or close to it. The reason for this is that the Crew is not focused on merit badges. For example, the Crew will not go to a typical summer camp focused on merit badges. If a scout needs a large number of merit badges, he is advised to remain with his Troop which will focus on merit badges.
This does not mean that you cannot earn merit badges in the Crew – you certainly can. We sign off on merit badges all the time, but we do not in general have special activities that target the completion of merit badges.
One thing we do focus on is Eagle Service projects. The Crew is designed to help any Scout with the start and completion of a service project to complete the Eagle rank requirements. Currently, the Crew has 4 eagle scouts from it’s first year alone.
Yes, many scouts are part of a troop and a crew. Being in both is called being a “multiple”. In other words, you are “primary” in one of the units and “multiple” in the other and you only pay dues for the “primary” unit.
Anyone age 14 or having completed the 8th grade and less than 21 can join a co-ed Venture crew.
