Cost for Scouting
When you register your scout you will make a payment that will cover your national membership fees. Our pack dues are due monthly to reduce the 'up front' cost. There are many optional events throughout the year that your scout can attend at an additional cost. Each scout has the opportunity to participate in fundraising to help reduce the extra costs. You will supply your scout with their uniform, please click on our "uniform" tab for that information.
We accept scouts all year long, rates maybe prorated depending on the time of year your scout signed up. Please contact us for these adjusted prices.
National Membership Fee $40.00
(This is council priced, this is subject to change per council needs.)
Boys' Life Magazine $12.00
(Boys' life magazine is not required but it is strongly recommended. Studies have shown that when a scout receives this magazine they stay in scouting longer.)
Annual Pack Dues $48.00
($4.00 per month)
(your annual pack dues will pay for each scouts extra patches, adventure loops, also but not limited to, aids in materials for dens/pack activities. These annual pack dues are broken into monthly dues $4.00 a pack meeting/month. You can pay these up front or monthly- pick what fits your financial needs.)
To keep our membership fees low our pack has asked each family to provide the uniforms for their scout. This includes the scout uniform, required patches and books. The pack will provide the scouts Neckerchief and Slide.
**Please check with the pack before purchasing uniforms, sometimes we have scouts that donate their old uniforms. We don't sell these donated uniforms as we believe in helping the "next guy".
**If you have financial concerns please bring them to our Committee Chair persons attention. We believe every scout deserves to continue in scouting, if finances come to play- we can help. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
