Backpack Rental Program

Do you have a young Scout that just crossed over? Not sure you want to buy an expensive backpack for a child still growing? Just don’t know enough about backpacking to make an educated decision? We can help with all of these problems and more. Our backpack rental program has been helping parents make the “right” decision for more than 8 years. For just $3 a day you can try before you buy, or just try…..

Call the Indianapolis Scout Shop at (317) 813-7070 and we can help explain the process and walk you through the rental bags available.

Outdoor Cooking Demonstrations

Troop 152, from the Pioneer District, will be hosting outdoor cooking demonstrations at the Indianapolis Scout Shop on Saturday, November 16 from 11:00AM to 2:00PM. Stop by to learn – and sample – dutch oven, foil packet and backpacking meals. As an added bonus, take advantage of 10% off all cookware and backpacking meals purchased at the Scout Shop!

Unit Depository Accounts

The council has established a unit depository account (UDA) for all chartered units. Units can access their UDA at any one of the four council service centers (but not at council camps), after a Scout Shop Manager has received the unit depository account authorization form from the unit committee chair.  Only those individuals designated on the form can spend the balances in these accounts.
