Ages 12 and up weighing between 100-300 pounds can ride the 800′ zip line for $5 for two rides. Some programs and merit badges have additional fees.

More details will be coming. $100 per scout and adult deposit is due in mid-January; another $100 per Scout and $75 per Leader is due mid-March, balance due mid-May. Merit Badge selections will be in April.

Christmas Tree Sales

Scouts support the troop and earn funds for their individual Scout Accounts by participating in BSA Christmas Tree sales. Profits from the tree sales are split 60% to troops and 40% for Camp Shenandoah maintenance. A scout earns credit for hours worked by him and up to one parent. Last year the rate was around $5 per hour. Summer Camp costs around $310, you could earn your own way!

The Troop job is to unload trees at Overhead Door (1800 Broadway St) on Sat Nov 29th at 8AM rain or shine. The tree unloading is for all scouts so please come. Bring gloves, water, snacks, and box cutter[ if you have totin chip], no uniforms and dress for any weather because the unloading must happen rain or shine. We will be taking trees off the truck(s), cutting the strings off the trees and putting tags on the trees.

Please call/email Roger Jones at 434-974-6394 home, 434-882-4133 cell, with any questions regarding unloading or tree sales.

Tree Sales Locations:

Barracks Road is at the corner of Barracks Rd and Emmet Street in the ALC Printing store parking lot

Better Living is between the Better Living store and Price Chevrolet on 29 north of town

Pantops is close to 250 near the old Ponderosa restaurant.

 For tree sales, scouts should dress appropriately and uniforms are not required due to tree sap, bring gloves, knife, water/hot drink, snack, flashlight for evening hours. Remember, it is the Scout’s responsibility to identify his replacement, not his Patrol Leader’s. At least two adults are needed for each time slot. If a Scout wants extra hours, he should contact patrol leaders. Extra time can also be logged by helping load/deliver trees to the different lots.

Parents should bring water/coffee, loppers, battery operated saws, pocketknife, flashlight, change (1s and 5s). We can accept credit cards if a parent has a smart phone and the appropriate ap. Scanner will be provided.
