Fees Explained


  1. BSA Registration Fee – These funds support Scouting at the national level. None of these funds go towards our Troop budget.
  2. Local Accident and Illness Insurance – supplemental insurance to help with the costs of medical care that may be needed due to an accident or illness during a Scouting event. None of these funds go to the Troop budget.
  3. Troop Dues: Troop dues are the only recharter fees that go to the Troop operating budget. Dues help to cover the cost of: purchasing new equipment, troop library, merit badges, other advancement awards, merit badge cards, rank advancement cards, neckerchief and slide at Tenderfoot as well as paying for basic uniform insignia (troop numbers, patrol patches, leadership position patches, etc.). Dues also help pay for the Courts of Honor.
  4. Scout Life – official publication of Boy Scouts of America available for $15.00 ($1.25 per month). Every Scout is encouraged to subscribe for the quality articles that relate to the Scouting program. Research proves a Scout will stay in the program longer and advance further if they read Scout Life.
