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 Membership Dues Increase

Posted on Oct 10 2021 - 10:46am
The Troop Committee had a meeting and one of the topics on the agenda was the discussion of raising the 2021-2022 membership dues based on the continued increase of the annual dues from the National Boy Scouts of America. The national increase is due to the rising costs associated with scouting, including the cost of liability insurance.

 Scouting is a year round program that remains one of the most valuable investments we can make to support young men and women today. The national membership fee is an enormous value when you consider that many seasonal extracurricular activities often start at $100 for registration alone. Add the cost of equipment, uniforms and other fees only to have participants lose interest after 1 or 2 seasons or outgrow the uniforms, shoes and equipment. The cost of scouting is an investment that lasts a lifetime and participants will never outgrow the values and leadership lessons learned along the way.
