Crew 626 was founded in July of 2009 and is chartered through Peñasquitos Lutheran Church. We are loosely affiliated with Troop 626, and some of our crew members are registered in both the troop and the crew. Our members are very active high school students who balance school and multiple extracurricular activities (band, orchestra, sports, service clubs, etc.), and they have decided to join Venturing because it provides them unique opportunities. We don't have a formal meeting place, but we are centered in the Rancho Peñasquitos area. Our current members attend local high schools such as Mt. Carmel HS, Rancho Bernardo HS and Westview HS. Admittedly, sometimes the members find it difficult to squeeze all of the crew's activities into their very busy schedules.
Crew 626 is quite laid-back in comparison to many other crews. We focuses primarily on having fun together while participating in a variety of activities. Our activities have ranged from urban experiences such as visiting the San Diego Zoo to high adventure activities such as backpacking in Yosemite National Park and Philmont. Most of our outings have emphasized outdoor activities (hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, etc.). The type of activities we participate in is largely determined by the interests of the crew members. We are not big on uniforms, and so far none of our members have shown much interest in earning Venturing awards.
