How Much Does Scouting Cost?
Every Scout pays a annual fee of $59
This includes the following…
- $36 for Registration
- $3 for Insurance
- $20 Pack Dues
*As a special incentive, fees for Kindergarteners & First Graders entering Pack 82 are $39.
A complete uniform with badges, neckerchief and hat for a First-time Scout costs about $85. Each boy in Cub Scouting will need a uniform. Each year, he will need a new handbook, cap, and neckerchief; but other uniform parts remain the same for at least the first few years. When a boy enters a Webelos den (4th & 5th grade), he may want to obtain a new khaki uniform. This khaki uniform can then be used in Boy Scouts.
Youth handbooks include the Tiger Handbook, Wolf Handbook, Bear Handbook, and Webelos Handbook. Each Scout needs a handbook.
Registration $59 + Complete Uniform $85 + Handbook $15 = $159*
Boys’ Life magazine: $12
Optional, but strongly recommended, you’ll find it to be an excellent resource. Normally $12 for 12 months.
* The above pricing is a really good guess but this number can fluctuate.
