Financial Things

Activity Fees

We aim the keep each activity self supporting.

  • Weekend hikes usually cost from $15-30 which covers driving (gas), campsite fees, and food expenses. These fees are collected just before departure. Please bring exact change.
  • Some additional lunch money is also needed as we usually stop for a fast food lunch on the way home.
  • Summer Camp fees are set by the camp and vary from camp to camp. Lately they have run from $350 to $400.
  • Longterm fees run about $125 and are payable when you sign up for Longterm.

Fund Raisers

We do not do any door-to-door fund raisers. Our main fund raiser is a food booth at the Old Hometown Fair. In the past we have sold pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers and soda. All Scouts and their parents are expected to work shifts at the booth. Proceeds from the booth are used to buy the patches and awards that you can earn. We also the money to buy equipment for the troop.


Camperships are available for those needing them. We don't want any boy to miss out on Scouting due to a financial hardship. Please consult with the Scoutmaster or the Troop Committee chairman for details. All camperships are strictly confidential.
