MARIETTA, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Boy Scout Troop 008 out of Marietta went to their regular meeting on Tuesday and realized their 12-foot trailer was gone.

Members attended their regular meeting at Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church off of Sandy Plains Road and realized their trailer was gone.

Jim Srock, troop 008's scout master, believes it was stolen sometime last week.

"I got a call on the way over here asking if I had taken the trailer home, and of course I didn't. And we discovered the trailer was missing last night," Scout master Jim Srock said.

The troop have one of their biggest camping events planned for this weekend and will have to scramble to buy more gear.

"All of our gear we've collected over 12 years was in that trailer," Srock said. "With the full camping schedule we have, we are going to need to replace it."

Srock estimates the total loss to be more than $6,000. The items inside the trailer included pots, pans, water jugs, coolers, kitchen items and everything else the troop would take on a weekend camping trip.

"It is frustrating, the big thing to me is the disappointment for the boys because this really is their big event for the year," Srock said. "This is the big one they plan for. This is the one that takes all of their energy."

Srock's 14-year-old son Adam, who is a star rank Scout, said he still can't believe someone would steal their trailer.

"I just thought someone might have had it, or borrowed it," Adam Srock said.

Adam Srock said he wants whoever took the trailer to return it before this weekend's camping trip.

"I say that either get it tracked down, or they just decide that they should give it back," Adam Srock said.

Despite the setback, Jim Srock said they will continue with their camping trip as planned.

"Even though there are some bad people in the world we are not going to let them bother us, we are going to carry on with our mission," Jim Srock said.
