Help keep our troop running

Troop 30 has been serving our community for more than 100 years. We provide acts of service but we also teach youth how to be leaders in our community.

How can you help? A monetary donation to Troop 30 helps get a scout to camp where he/she/they learns outdoor skills. Or it can help pay the costs of campsites during the spring and fall, where the whole troop learns how to use maps and compasses, tents and cooking tools in the woods.

Inquire at if you can make a donation to Troop 30. Here are some of the things that help scouts.

  • Camp Fuel for stoves and lanterns. These are used sparingly but with four scout patrols we do go through fuel.
  • Backpacking Stoves. We have a curriculum that requires scouts to learn how to cook while on a hike.
