Our troop make it clear to parents and boys that all money earned belongs to
the troop. A portion of the fund raiser is put in the boys account for camp,
uniforms, and other scout gear. Yes he may purchase a backpack or sleeping bag.
If he leaves the troop for another unit his account goes with him via a check
to the new unit. If he leaves Scouting his account turns into a donation to the
troop general fund. They all know this up front. There are no surprises.
