Welcome to the Crew 1775 Website

Venturing Crew 1775 is rebooting......


Venturing Crew 1775 is a partner unit to Troop 119. 

At this point, Crew 1175 is open to scouts who are 13 and have completed the eighth grade, or age 14 through 20 years of age.

Crew 1775 will concentrate on providing high-adventure activities to the older scouts in the troop. 

The Crew meets once a month, usually the first Tuesday of the month.

If you would like to join us or have any questions, contact the Committee Chair Jan Gunther at 781-652-0420.

Scouting for All

Posted by jgunther on Oct 5 2023 - 10:06am

We believe that the Scouting experience should be available to all youth in our community, regardless of financial status.  If your family can not afford the registration fee, please consult our committee treasurer Bernie Gunther in confidence at 781-652-0420.

Crew 1775 is part of the Spirit of Adventure Council which serves over 6,000 youth through 1,000 volunteers in over 200 Packs, Troops, Crews and other units without regard to color, race, religion, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or economic status. (Adopted July 19, 2001)

Serving Breakfast at a Soup Kitchen - Moved to June 15 and/or July 20!

Posted by jgunther on Oct 5 2023 - 10:06am

Help serve a delicious breakfast to the guests at a soup kitchen in Boston.

We anticipate leaving Lexington by 7:15am and returning around 11:30am.  Sign up for June 15 or July 20

The Soup Kitchen is run by the Paulist Center at 5 Park Street in Boston, in the church basement. They run a breakfast on the 3rd Saturday of every month, as well as a weekly dinner on Wednesday nights.   The guests are the homeless and poor of the greater downtown area. 

Volunteers are needed to help cook (sometimes), plate food, serve, and cleanup.  Guests are served restaurant style with servers going around the room with a prepared plate for each guest. This is very similar to many of the service projects the crew has done.

  • For Pick Up: meet at the LHS front parking lot around 5pm on Sunday
  • Location: We will be staying at the Mattingly’s little ski cottage in Jackson, New Hampshire, so space is a bit limited.

Everyone going on the trip should fill out this poll about what you need to rent and what type of skiing you want to do on Saturday (https://goo.gl/forms/O5X6dpHL3w9bhZqZ2)
