Boy Scout Venture Crew Starting.....

It is Finaly Starting...The Bogota First Aid Squad and Bogota Rescue Squad have come to gether to co-sponsor a Boy Scout Venture Crew. This group will be made up of Boys and Girls from the ages of 14 to 20 that have an interest in First Aid, Heavy Rescue, Emergency Service, and the Outdoors.

We are currently starting an advertising program that will get the word out to all who might be interested. This is open to current Boy Scouts that fall within the age group. This will also open to surrounding towns like Ridgefield Park, Teaneck, Hackensack, Leonia, Ridgefield, etc. If you know of anyone that might be interested, please have them contact:

Alan Bookspan at alan.bookspan@alliedbuilding.com.

Also, We are looking for any adults that might want to be on a committee or help out in any way. This is a great opportunity for kids to get off the streets and get involved with a good program with out costing the tax payers any money.

I can honestly say this new Venturing Crew will be a solid program. Alan Bookspan has been a dedicated scouter and volutneer EMT for years.

To learn more about the Venturing program check out the official web site:

Each Venturing crew specializes in a unique program.  Hackensack has a Venturing Crew.  Crew 55 Contact:  RON FREY 201-694-0736 rgf@bellatlantic.net , and I believe they focus on High Adventure Treks.
