    We charge $30 to join. $12 for Boys Life. They have to buy their own uniforms and books. We don't charge weekly or annual dues.

      We charge $40 per year Pack Dues and collect the annual $15 registration/recharter fee. The Dues along with our fundraiser cover the cost of awards, patches, and pinewood derby cars during the program year. It also covers the cost of new handbooks and neckerchiefs when the boys graduate to new dens. If a scouts sells $200 of popcorn, then his dues are paid for. Uniforms, Boy's Life, Camping Events, Outings, etc. are all extra costs.

      Webelos earning their Arrow of Light are responsible for the cost of their "career arrows" or any other items they want to add. They decide at the den-level with their parents approval. The Pack pays for the cost of AoL Certificates and AoL patches.

        I guess it's about time I threw in my packs two bits...

        When the scout registars, they pay the normal natinoal registartion fee (with/with-out) Boys Life. (what is this...$35 now?) On top of that fee, our Pack has a fee of $80.00. We've considered raising it, but to be honest, this number seems to meet our needs. The 'Scout' will now be responsible for obtaining his own shirt, unit numbers, and council strip. Many parents also buy the (really cool) patch holders for the scouts rank. (okay, I think they are really cool, becuase we didn't have them when I was a cub scout.
        From here, the pack provides: Book, scarve, slide, patches, belt loops (and we tend to earn a ton of those), pine-wood derby car, rain-gutter raggata boats, awards for both events (trophies or medals, or both). Additionally, we pitch in with Blue and Gold banquet stuff.
        But, all of our scouts are told...if you sign up during pop-corn season...you can earn your pack dues through selling popcorn. So far, my son has hit the mark every time...and I'm really hoping he'll do better this year than last year. Time will tell.

        -- As an added bonus I wasn't aware of until VERY recently... our charter organization picks up the re-charter dues for all of the Scouts. So.. the family pays it once.. and then that's it. It's not the annual gift which keeps on giving... as it were.

          $150.

          This covers everything except food at campouts (typically $5-7 per person), winter camp, summer camp, and part of the uniform (shirt, pants, belt, socks).

          Fees and the rest can be covered through popcorn sales.

            When a new boy joins he pays the registration through the end of the year and has to buy a shirt. From that point on, the pack or CO covers everything. The pack uses popcorn money to pay for books, scarfs, sliders, campouts, den/pack activities, class B shirts, etc. The CO covers all recharter fees. We are very fortunate in this regard.
