What's the cost of Scouting?
Boys and their parents are responsible for a small registration fee with the National Boy Scouts of America, and also for purchasing a Scout uniform shirt. Scout uniform shirts range from $23 to $35. Scouts are also encouraged to subscribe to Boys' Life Magazine. A one year subscription costs $12. Other costs are determined by the individual packs, troops, teams, or crews.
Units earn income by working on approved fundraising projects such as popcorn sales. These projects can fund the pack's activities for the entire year. Financial assistance is available for families and for the Scouting units. Scouting is also funded through voluntary Friends of Scouting contributions.
