When our troop has a fund raiser, I usually like to have at least 50% of
the profit go into the scouts "individual account" with the remaining
amount go towards the unit.
In addition to fund raising, we charge dues of $3/month plus all expenses
for a weekend campout (usually around $8-$10).
All monies earned in the "individual account" can only be used for "long
term camping" unless he has more then enought for summer camp, then he
can spend the remaining amount on anything that is "scouting" related
(dues, campouts, equipment, etc.).
If a scouts leaves the troop, all money in his "individual account" goes
back to the troop.
It will be interesting to see what other units do. Hope this is helpful.
