    • Our Council did not let the Pack talk at the Scout Talks or at our Join Scout Night. Totally thier prepared script.  
    • We have no council fees or insurance (per scout) so only the $33 BSA fee.  We make BL optional and charge a $55 Pack fee.  We will probably raise our pack fee to $65 to build up some cash reserves as the leaders typically have to loan the Pack money in August for all of our annual reservations prior to popcorn or fee payments are made.   I had one parent object and I simply showed them our finances... they understood after that.   Given that many of the parents are paying $1-2k per year per sports league scouts are considered relatively cheap.
    • Great!  It is a win if it helps one scout.  And it could be very therapeutic for you as well.   Thank you for being there for the kids.
    • We do $75 a year flat rate. If we do activities outside of a pack meeting that's an additional cost (sleepover at a museum, monster truck show, etc) Nobody has ever balked at the cost. I run a used uniform package to keep costs down so it's about $36 for a shirt with all patches and a belt, rather than $60 retail. We don't require a hat. 
    • Interesting BSA registration fee is $33.  Boys Life is $12  The BL is optional Personally I would find another council and tell them to bag the activity fee
