Service Fee For Offline Registration:

Online applications are more accurate, more secure so youth can benefit from the Scouting program faster and adult background checks can be completed more efficiently. This service fee is intended to motivate our Scout families towards online applications.

Unit Level Dues:

To cover the costs of awards and recognition, crafts, and special events most local units have program dues. Units may offer opportunities to conduct fundraisers to offset these costs.  Dues are established by the families in the unit through the unit committee. Most units charge a small upfront fee and not the full years program cost so families have an opportunity to participate in fundraisers.
