In response to Jason's comments about troop projects to earn money for
While my troop does exactly what you say in that we have money making
project to earn money towards summer camp, not all troops do this.
In fact, the policy of having money making projects is in the hands
of the adults and not the boys.
Maybe we should promote this idea and on the Campership application
ask the questions as to what money making projects has the troop
offered to its members, what was the average earnings per boy,
how much did this applicant make towards camp, etc.
I've always held the opinion that no person should get something
for nothing (problem with our current welfare system) and that
there is individual pride in earning your way towards camp.
But... we do get money in "ear marked" for camperships and have
to have some means to disburse it. Any more thoughts...
