Troop Equipment (aka “The Basement”)

Before you buy, you might want to take a trip to the basement. The troop has just about everything you’d need (and more) for a camping trip. Just check it out with the Quartermaster. Items include:

  • Tents
  • Sleeping bags
  • Backpacks
  • Water filters
  • Stoves
  • Uniforms (yes, uniforms)
  • Merit Badge Library
  • And much, much more

Troop Dividends

The Tree Lot is the primary mechanism to fund the Troop. In years where we manage our costs well and sales exceed expectations, the extra funds go toward full subsidies for Summer Camp, Summer Trips and other outings that normally require extra fees.
