Both of our local Packs give each boy who earns Arrow of Light a Boy
Scout handbook and a certificate for a down payment on Boy Scout summer
camp. The amount has usually been $25, depending on funds available.
The Pack treasury at the end of each Scouting year is money earned by
all the boys for the benefit of all the boys. The second-year Webelos
tend to raise the most money in popcorn sales, but will only benefit
from the profits for 3 or 4 months before they leave the Pack. Seems to
me they are "paying their own way!"
