Welcome to the Crew 357 website!

Dear Youths and Parents,
We are Crew 357, officially chartered by the Massachusetts Rifle Association in Woburn and part of the Venturing program. Venturing is a Scouting program oriented towards older teens. Similar to the Boy Scouts, the program is run by the BSA and thus has essentially the same objectives. A major difference between Boy Scouts and Venturing is that Venturing is organized into crews rather than troops. A crew tends to be much smaller than Boy Scout troops and usually each crew is based on an activity. This crew, crew 357, is centered around shooting sports. As a crew, our goals are to foster a healthy respect for firearms, develop our shooting skills, and promote Scouting values. We hold meetings every few weeks at the Mass Rifle Association range where we learn about gun safety, shoot guns, and plan outing trips. The shooting club we are hosted at has a variety of ranges and shooting activities available, including trap, clays, long range rifle shooting, pistol shooting, and archery. We also plan on going on a few trips throughout the year. The benefit of being in Venturing is that we are much less restricted than in Boy Scouts. One of these benefits are that we are allowed to use a larger variety of firearms, including pistols. Due to having more freedom in Venturing, we possess many more opportunities in terms of possible trips and activities. Some trips we could potentially go on are trips to gun shows, camping trips to New Hampshire, and high adventure trips. Our small crew size allows us to do whatever the crew members want to do. If any mature scouts aged 14-18 or young adult leaders(male or female) aged 18-21 are interested in joining, please email us.

Yours in Scouting,
Jeffrey, Raymond, Brendan and Evan
Founders of Crew 357


We typically meet bimonthly on the second and fourth Friday evenings of the month at the Massachusetts Rifle Association in Woburn Massachusetts.
Our next gathering is January 28th at 1:00 pm, we will be meeting at the Marlboro Gun Show for a walk around together.
Feel free to bring a friend if they are interested in joining the crew, as always new members are encouraged and always welcome.
We will check our uniforms for the appropriate patches so we present well to the public, if you don't know just bring the uniform and patches and we can help you put them on. Your mom won't have to guess where they go.
Questions email us by "Contact us" or by calling our adviser Tom Puschak at 781 248-7191.

We had a nice meeting with the scouts discussing what they wanted while the adults went through the registration process for the Crew. Then some safety instruction and of course shooting in our wonderful 75 foot indoor range. Some of the other club members that were on the range with us showed us what they brought to the range to practice with. Interesting, always very interesting. The leaders enjoyed the meeting as well.
