Just to clarify... in the screenshots we show paying the $180, which is the dues for this coming year in full.
All scouts will be receiving an invoice for that amount soon or you can go ahead and pay it.
These are troop dues to cover the meals and activities at the monthly camping trips.
To make it easy on our treasurer we bill only once, but you can pay it all at once or you can pay it in pieces in whatever way fits your budget.
Also to give you a heads up since we are heading into re-charter season, the updated national membership fees are:
$72 for Cub Scouts, Scouts BSA, Venturing and Sea Scouts participants
$45 for all adult volunteers (includes cost of background check)
$75 per unit charter fee
We will be collecting the membership fee in late October/early November to ensure that our recharter of our troop is able to be processed efficiently.
Our council does not believe money should prevent any youth from participating in Scouting. Our council offers financial assistance to help families who need help with Scouting expenses. Please reach out to me privately for assistance.
If you don't have a PayPal account, you can mail a check to us at our PO Box.
Many people use their bank's Online Banking to set up automatic checks to go out by mail.
Please make all checks payable to: BSA Troop 728 Boys
