Support Troop 1176

Want to Help?  Here's How!

Everyone knows that the key to being a Scouts BSA Scout is to Be Prepared.  But it’s hard to be prepared for a hike without hiking boots, for a camp-out without a tent, or for a troop meeting without a uniform.  Whereas an established troop is already well-equipped, our new troop has to procure our troop equipment from scratch.


Although scouting is not prohibitively expensive, female Scouts BSA troops like ours are new and our official registration date was February 1st, 2019.  Consequently, we did not have the opportunity to fundraise during the fall, Scouts BSA's major fundraising season, and rely on donations from our community to help our troop get started.  Although our troop asks parents to pay for some of the scouting journey we also don't want it to be a financial burden.  Also, our troop has costs that are not passed on, such as camping equipment and various other equipment and supplies.
