TROOP 33 - DeKalb, IL
EQUIPMENT INVENTORY

As any tradesman will tell you, it takes the right tools to do the job right. The purpose in acquiring equipment is to support the program of the troop. There's no magic list of what equipment is right or wrong. Since troops offer different types of programs, their equipment needs will be different also.

We offer an extremely active program based on the needs and interests of the boys, which may vary slightly from year to year. We also run several food booths as fundraisers to support the troop and boys financially. Our equipment inventory is targeted at meeting those needs.

Equipment:
          A. Tentage
          B. Cooking Equipment
          C. Lighting
          D. Tools
