How much does it cost to participate?
The cost to participate in Troop 5 is up to your
son. There are costs which will be outlined below but every Scout has the
opportunity to pay their way. How? Unlike most organizations, when Troop 5 has
a fundraising event like the annual popcorn or wreath sale, the proceeds of the
fundraising goes to the individual Scouts who participate. By example, if your
son sells $300 of popcorn he earns 30% credit which is deposited into the Troop
5 Scout bank. He can use this money to pay for any Scout related activities
including paying for all or part of summer camp, other activities, uniforms,
camping equipment or annual Troop 5 registration. It is Troop 5’s goal that
finances do not prevent any boy from fully participating in Boy Scouts so
please speak to the Scoutmaster if support is needed.
