OLDER SCOUTS: You are particularly needed April 8 for 2 reasons:
- You are healthy, strong & tough, and not all Scouts and adults are.
- Earn money for camp or contribute to the 255 Campership Fund.*
EVERY HOUR COUNTS: Here is how it works. Every hour you work on Jan 23, Jan 28, and Apr 8 goes to your total to determine your cut - how much “cash for camp” you earn. Only Scouts can earn money. All profits go to the Scouts, and they are substantial. In years past Scouts earned over $20 per hour worked. You get the satisfaction of earning your own way & the gratitude of your parents for being self-sufficient. (TIP: To maximize your earnings, come to each of the 3 events and don’t be late.)
PARENTS: You are needed too. A few are needed on Jan 28 to shuttle Scouts to flyer distribution locations throughout Chevy Chase. ALL AVAILABLE PARENTS are needed Apr 8 to drive mulch bags to customers. While trucks/trailers/SUVs are the best, all vehicles are useful for transporting bags.
* The Campership Fund: Mulch credits can be carried over year-to-year, but those not needed by a Scout can be donated to the 255 Campership Fund that helps offset the cost for other Scouts who might not otherwise be able to go to camp.
