Dear Scouting Family,

 We received this message from the National Boy Scouts of America Office and are passing along to you so you are aware of upcoming changes. The information (in the links below) is all the information we have at this time on this upcoming change. Thank you.

A Message from the Chief Scout Executive - Membership Fee

Membership Fee Increase Notice

FINAL Registration Fee - FAQ 9/17/19 


The Council understands that the last minute registration fee increase may cause an undue burden on some families. The Council has a limited amount of scholarships available to assist those in greatest need. Families should contact their unit leader and identify their need. The Unit leader, after looking at all opportunities to help out at the unit and charter partner level, should contact their District Executive Rob Stewart in writing/email detailing the amount needed by the unit as a whole.

Rob will then work with our volunteer committee and Scout Executive Stephen Smith, to determine how we can best meet those needs. All requests need to be submitted by December 15th, in order for the determination to be done in time for the rechartering deadline.

Scout together make something happen!

Scouts do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together.

Set goals and clear them. They go places. Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. Bricks that eventually form a foundation. One a Scout can stand on to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles. For the parents watching in awe, it’s not a question of where their Scout will go, but where won’t he go.
