Venturing Crew 270 in Thurmont, Maryland

Venturing Crew 270 is a co-ed organization for young men and women, ages 14 through 20 (or 13 and graduated the 8th grade), who want opportunities to explore the outdoors, learn new life skills, develop character and leadership, and help out your community with a little bit of service. We are sponsored by the Thurmont Conservation & Sportsman’s Club, Inc.

Our regular activities include but are not limited to:

  • A business meeting 1st Sunday of the month at 6:00 p.m.  We currently meet in the Clubhouse of the Sportsman’s Club (11617 Hunt Club Rd.) in Thurmont.
  • At least one activity meeting during the month (Come to a business meeting to learn more)
  • At least one outdoor adventure, activity or training activity per month.
  • Occasional community service projects.
All members of Crew 270 should register on the Web site so that we can upgrade your membership status to ‘Author’.  This will allow you to see content not available to non-Crew members, submit articles to the Web site and keep your information up to date.
If you have any questions, send the Advisor an email!

The Crew’s Super Trip (Tier III Adventure) in 2022 is a “home-grown” week camping and exploring! One day we’ll be going to NYC, one day we’ll be on the range, shooting, another will be spent having a pool party, other days we’ll be doing more great adventures!   Come join the Super Adventures today!
RECRUIT!  The crew is always in need of new members and is urging all current members to talk to their friends and encourage them to come to a crew event and see what Venturing is all about. Questions about Venturing? Call 301-712-6888 and talk with the Advisor, David Place.
