Welcome to Troop 710 in Goochland, VA

We are the only Troop serving the youth in Goochland County, Va. We are excited to have you join us. Troop 710 is located in the Heart of Virginia Scout Reservation, T. Brady Saunders, in Goochland, Virginia. The Troop meets in the Handicraft Lodge of the Cub Adventure Camp on every Monday evening that Goochland Public Schools are open. The reservation is located at 1723 Maidens Road, Maidens VA.

Troop 710 is actually two troops.  One for young men, one for young women - both troops are very active. Along with learning Scouting and leadership skills, we regularly camp, hike, bike, ski and float!

Fall Pork Fundraiser

Posted on Nov 9 2020 - 1:04pm
Troop 710 Scouts and Families,
On behalf of the Troop 710 committee and leadership, thank you for your continued participation and support of the troop! It’s time for our annual Fall Pork Fundraiser which has always been a fantastic fundraiser for the troop. With the troop not having a spring pork fundraiser and the fact we will not be able to hold our annual spaghetti dinner fundraiser, we need your support more than ever with this fall pork fundraiser. Our cooking process will be different this fall so please read below to learn how this will be handled.
We’re selling hickory-smoked pork loins for $25 each and we are starting today! Please read below what scouts will earn for each pork loin they sell.
On the Troop 710 website, there is a folder in the Files section titled “2020 Fall Pork Fundraiser.” In the folder, you will find this email titled information sheet, a spreadsheet to track your sales, and several printable flyers you can use & personalize to advertise and sell pork:
-Pork Fundraiser Flyer – Fall 2020: a printout that you can add your name & contact information to, and hand out to people at school, clubs, sports, neighbors, work etc. You can also email the flyer and share it on your social media pages.

2021 Budget

Posted on Oct 1 2020 - 10:01pm

As you are aware, we've been unable to hold our spring fund raiser.  Committee has also made the decision to cancel our 2021 Spaghetti dinner.  However the troop does have adequate funds in place to mostly fund our program at the level of recent years without fundraising.  However, any fundraising we do will give us a cushion and put us in a better position for 2022.

We need someone to take over the fundraising chair on the committee.  This position is more important that ever with the limited opportunity to fund raise.
