Welcome to Crew 270's Website

Welcome to the Website of 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, develop character, and perform community service. We are sponsored by the Thurmont Community Ambulance Service but are not part of the ambulance company.

Our regular activities include but are not limited to:

  • Meeting and program on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m.  We currently meet in the upstairs meeting room of the Ambulance Co. at 27 N. Church St. in Thurmont.
  • At least one outdoor adventure 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 an email!

Important Notes

Meeting Night & Time: The Business Meeting is the 1st and 3rd Sunday night of the month from 7:00PM - 9:00PM, 2nd floor of the Thurmont Community Ambulance Service building (27 North Church St.) and activities will be conducted per whatever the calendar says.

Are you 13 but NOT graduated the 8th grade yet?  The Crew's Super Trip in 2015 is to the U.S. Virgin Islands and to go you need to fund raise and plan with the crew. We have a special plan for those "not quite" able to join yet so that you can work with the crew up until you turn 14 or June 1st (the official program date of the new school year).  Want to know more?  Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.
