Money and Fees

Troop Summer Camp Activity Fee
We always do a lot of extra things at Summer Camp, like rafting on the Delaware, the bottomless keg of birch beer, an annual commemorative T-shirt, pizza night, watermelon, and more.  We need to charge each Scout a fee this year of $30 if attending one camp and $50 if attending both camps with our Troop.  You can bring a check payable to BSA Troop 98 or we'll just BillMonk you.

Camp Pictures
We'll have a picture of our entire troop taken upon arrival.  You may buy an 8x10 paper-framed copy of this for $8.  We'll do our best to take high quality photos ourselves at the same time.  Let us know if you want to buy Ockanickon's picture when you complete the Response Form.

How much money should you send with your Scout?
Consider fees for things like the scuba programs, shotgun shells, handicraft merit badge supplies, etc., then add trading post spending money ($30 to $50 has seemed about right in the past for the trading post).  We will keep a camp bank where Scouts can see DAD (Deposit and Draw) once or twice a day to get their money.  Small bills are really helpful ($5's and even $1's).
Here's an idea of what some of the clothing items cost at the Trading Post:  SHIRTS/HATS  (we won't be pre-ordering anything)
