Support Troop 709

Mission and Objectives

By supporting the Boy Scouts, you are supporting America’s future.

For over a century, the Boy Scout of America has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes and, through over a century of experience, knows that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

Boy Scout Troop 709 represents Vista, San Marcos, Oceanside and Escondido. The Troop currently has over 60 scouts and is one of the largest troops in San Diego County.

How the Funds Raised Will be Utilized

The net proceeds from the golf tournament and silent auction will be used for the following:

  • To help Troop 709 and the Scouts offset some of the costs and fees incurred for our summer camps through our Summer Camp Assistance Fund.
  • In 2020, the Scouts have planned their summer adventure to Glacier National Park in Montana and to Yellowstone National Park.
  • The Scouts have even started to talk about planning their 2022 summer camp in Maui, Hawaii.
  •  To help establish a College Scholarship Fund for Eagle Scouts that have shown exceptional character and leadership skills.

The cost of each of these programs run from approximately $500 to $1,500 per scout, and this fundraiser is used to help offset a portion of the cost. In addition, some funds will be used toward the purchase of much needed camping equipment for these adventures as the current equipment has become quite worn from many years of frequent use.

Prior Year Accomplishments

This event is the Troop’s major fundraiser of the year with net proceeds helping to fund troop activities, supplies and equipment. 

What started out as a way to raise funds to purchase a much needed Troop cargo trailer back in 2012, has turned into one of the most successful fundraisers for our Troop and the San Diego-Imperial Council of the Boy Scouts of America. 

With the past success of our previous fundraisers, the Troop was able to send 43 Scouts on a two week summer camp to Alaska in 2016. An adventure that each Scout will cherish for his lifetime.


We Need Your Help

 We  have a very large goal to meet this year and we cannot do it without  your generous support. Would you please help? Our goal this year is to  raise $20,000, which helps cover only a partial amount of the Scout’s  programs and activities we have planned in the next two years. Any  sponsorship program you would be willing to support will be greatly  appreciated.

Our  sponsor’s contributions ensure the troop can continue to offer quality  scouting experiences to educate, inform, and engage our entire scouting  family and community.

We thank you for your generosity and appreciate the support you are able to offer.

By supporting Boy Scout Troop 709, you are supporting America’s future.
