Scout Trailer

Postby zoolakis » Mon Mar 18, 2013 2:00 pm

I've been asked to find out the process to purchase a Scout Trailer for our scout troop. I have not idea where to start. The ward is planning on using excess funds from our scout camp fundraiser. Any suggestions?

Since the Hand Books only address automobiles and buses it maybe best to ask for further guidance from church headquarters, as I'm sure they have had to address this issue before.

As for funding it would certainly be permissible to use fundraiser dollars to purchase a trailer as it would be considered equipment that the unit needs for annual camps. Although I would suspect that there is other equipment needed that would be a more practical use of the funds.
