BSA trunk club: 10 photos of mobile Scouting storage spaces

Angela has a trunk full of Scouting for Food donations. Jennifer’s SUV can hold 80 dozen doughnuts for a troop fundraiser. And Rob fills his hatchback with camping and paddling supplies.

Scouters from coast to coast (or should I say Interstate 5 to Interstate 95?) use their cars as mobile storage spaces for all things Scouting.

That’s why I asked to see photos of your car’s trunk, and you responded in a big way.

Here are 10 of my favorites. If you have a trunk photo to share, learn how to send it to me at the end of this post.

Rob C., Troop 103, Miamisburg, Ohio


Miguel D., Pack 75 and Troop 75
