Registration And Dues
The Troop re-charters every December. The first part of the re-chartering process requires each scout and scouter to renew his membership with the Troop and the BSA. The re-registration process will begin in October each year.
For 2016-17, the dues are $125.00 which includes a (one-time) Class B T-shirt, a monthly scouting magazine, Boys Life, and all the badges a Scout earns.
Parents are urged to register with the troop and help support the Troop Committee. There is no fee for adults to register but it enables you to participate in all Troop activities. The registration fees for adult scouters are paid for by the Troop.
