Being a Scout troop, this trip is different from a standard vacation trip.
The cost of this trip is the major consideration. It is not possible to have an exact price so far ahead of the trip due to airline and other reservation systems but we have approximated the cost at $1100 per person. This includes travel, accommodations, and food and entry fees. There will be an initial deposit of $200 required for this trip due in the fall of 2008 which reserves space on the trip. Our goal is to enlist your aid in finding those bargains and other opportunities to help defray the cost.
Initially we need to determine who is interested in going on this trip. Attendance for this trip will be extended to registered members of the Boy Scouts and Troop 22. Adults may participate and a minimum number will be required to attend for safety reasons.
For those Cubs and Webelos who are currently in Pack 22 and are considering crossing into Boy Scouts, this trip is an option. We will work with those scouts and their families wishing to participate and include them into all fund-raising opportunities to help defray the cost of the trip.
For all those participating in the fund-raising activities, the money raised will be split between all those involved in the activity. If participants change their minds and withdraw from the trip, their funds will be spread among the rest of the group. There is no refund or reassignment of funds raised by the troop to other purposes.
What activities are you willing to help with to raise the funds? We are planning on some now and hope you can come up with more ideas to help us on our way.
We know this is a huge undertaking and we are looking for lots of help. Please call Mr. Warner with any questions. We will have monthly updates at the Troop Committee meetings on this trip.
