in the past my troop has put $1 for each item sold into the account of the
scout selling the item. but this year we will be putting the entire profit
from each scouts sales into their account and try and teach the scouts to
plan ahead and save for camp themselves.
we also have 2 dinner fund raisers and the pre-sale money goes into the
scout accounts with the walk-in going to the troop.
in the past the troop paid for 1/2 of camp and 1/2 for JLT, we will
continue to pay for JLT. but expect the scouts to pay for camp,
registration, boys life and the monthly campouts
