I only got your post today because I am on digest mode. I know your
troop committee meeting is past but here is what we do.
1. We have a $2.00 fee for every trek(except summer camp, camporee, and
service projects) for expendables and wear and tear. We provide tents
and patrol gear. The trek leader is responsible for the trek budget and
sets the fee of the the trek based on up front costs. Food is usually
but not always a seperate item. We have a tradition of donating driving
and generally don't recompense for that except for parking fees. Awards
are also budgeted into the trek fee. Service projects are treated as
troop paid treks with all costs born by the troop.
