What do you expect of families? Decide up front what, if anything, you’ll ask of fam- ilies receiving assistance. Pack 226 requires them to sell popcorn, which helps replenish the scholarship fund. Pack 3371 also encourages Scouts receiving assistance to sell popcorn, offering them a range of incentives when they do. “Some of them sold plenty of popcorn this fall and won’t need assistance next year,” Rattray says.


What other help is available? Rattray suggests checking with your council to see what help is available. Many councils offer camper- ships for day camp and resident camp, and some have other assistance available as well. It was camp, by the way, that first taught Rattray about financial assistance. After he had gone away to college, he heard that one of the boys in his troop was going to summer camp on scholarship. But the troop didn’t have a scholarship fund. Rattray’s dad, who was the Scoutmaster, had quietly paid the boy’s way. This continues to guide Rattray. “If nothing else, I’ll do it the way my father did it,” he says. ¿
