Fees and Fundraisers
Dues/Chartering: $100.00 per year – $24.00 goes directly to the BSA national office
Campouts: These generally vary from $25.00 up to approximately $75.00. These fees are all inclusive (campground or cabin, event costs, food and travel), with the exception being if a boy wishes to purchase additional snacks or souvenirs if available.
Summer Camp: $250.00 a week for boys, and the adults vary depending upon how many boys attending.
High Adventure: $650.00 approx. This will vary on where we go and the type of activities we do.
** All fees must be paid at least a week prior to an event, or your child will not be allowed to attend. Some events, such as summer camp and high adventure, may have earlier deadlines.
*If money is a problem or concern for you, please let the Scoutmaster or Committee Chairman know about it. There are ways from council, etc. for attending summer camp, and we can work out a payment plan, etc. for Troop expenses. But please remember, we will not keep your boy out of participating because of money issues.*
Our Fundraisers Include:
With all of the pressure put on boys time – school, sports or extra-curricular activities, and scouting – we have found the most effective fundraising is actually provided by the parents. We are active in concession sales at OSU events (sports and concerts) with Levy Restaurants. Boys older than 16 can participate in this fundraiser as well, and proceeds will be “deposited” directly into the boy’s “Scout Bucks” account to be used for any appropriate Scouting related expense.
We do other fund raising such as car washes, Christmas wreath sales, and Scout Popcorn sales from time to time. Additional fundraising opportunities will be brought up and approved by the Troop Committee.
