Trail’s End Pledge'09%20trail's%20end%20logo

For over 30 years, Trail’s End has been in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America, and our mission has always been the same: to help Scout packs, troops and councils raise the money needed to fund their programs and activities throughout the year. Your purchase helps to pay for the activities Scouts do, for the camps they attend, and for the equipment they need, like canoes, tents and uniforms.

Each Scout, along with his family, is responsible for raising money for his pack or troop. 70% of your purchase goes back to the Scout, his troop or pack, and his council.

It’s our job to make sure the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts feel good about what they sell, so it’s up to us to offer the best-tasting, highest-quality snacks possible. We  hope you enjoy your experience on trails-end.com and that you are delighted with the products you receive. As always, thank you for supporting Scouting.

Budget Work Sheet and other Helps

To develop the pack budget, complete the worksheet with the unit leader and committee at the pack’s annual program planning conference, and then share it with the Cub Scouts’ parents. Be sure to keep parents involved and informed. The pack’s program calendar and budget information needs to be communicated regularly to families, especially at the start of the program year. By sharing the pack’s program plans and budgetary needs, you can help newly recruited Cub Scouts and their parents gain a greater understanding of just what fun is waiting for them during the pack’s entire program year.

The worksheet can be downloaded in two formats:

Budget Work Sheet PDF (to be completed by hand)
