Boy Scouts of America Venture Crew 1861
Venture Crew 1861 is part of the BSA New Birth of Freedom Council and is chartered by the GBPA. The Venture Crew accurately portrays a Civil War Fife and Drum Corps and Color Guard of the 1st Pennsylvania Reserves originally recruited in Gettysburg, York and Lancaster. The musicians also portray Johnson’s Division CSA fife and drum corps.
Scout Camping in Gettysburg
Scouts and other organized youth groups may camp on hallowed ground on Gettysburg’s Historic Daniel Lady Farm. Reasonable rates apply. Many Scouts participate in the BSA Gettysburg Heritage Trail Award program while at the farm. Service projects and patches are also available.
Education Center, Store, and Museum
Educational events, and limited museum displays are housed in the house and barn of the Historic Daniel Lady Farm. GBPA merchandise is sold in our store in the barn’s milk house.
Watch for a new facility to house these activities and offices as the GBPA expands its outreach and mission.
