Scouts have opportunities to participate in fund raising events that will increase the balance in their Scout account. Expenses such as dues and camping trips are deducted from Scout's individual accounts.
Some fund raising events benefit the Troop, which is equally important. Scouts are obligated and expected
to participate in Troop fund raisers, as the proceeds benefit everyone in the unit.
Car washes, hot dog and hamburger sales, popcorn, and dinners are a few ways we raise funds for the boys and the Troop.
If a Scout wishes to participate in various high adventure activities, fund raising becomes extremely important. High adventure experiences can cost well over $1000 and it can take several years for a Scout to save enough to cover a trip.
Fund raisers accomplish more than just earn money - Scouts learn the value of work through these efforts. They give the troop the opportunity to put our name out in the community. Fund raisers help Scouting stay relevant in our neighborhood. Your active participation is very important.
