We ask our scouts to take care of the equipment. For example, we require our scouts to dry and air out their tents after a camp out, clean their stoves, and wash all the utensils after cooking meals. These efforts help prolong the usage of our equipment and also teach the scouts about taking full responsibilities for cleaning after themselves and taking care of expensive equipment.
All scouts and their families are financially responsible for equipment lost or damaged due to negligence. It is important that scouts and parents understand that our troop equipment is expensive and damages or loss can be costly to the troop. Financial responsibilities can include, but are not limited to, paying for repairs and/or replacement of lost or damaged equipment.
We ask that all parents review this policy with their scouts and emphasize the importance of taking ownership of the troop equipment and taking pride in the care and maintenance of that equipment. We thank you in advance for your understanding and for your support of this Troop Equipment Policy.
Multiple Event Prioritization Policy
In the event of a conflict between events, equipment will be supplied in the following priority order:
- Troop Outings and Events as scheduled annually
- Troop Eagle COH’s
- District Events
- Council Events
- All other events
The Scoutmaster and Senior Patrol Leader may re-prioritize at their discretion.
