# 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.**

**Uniform: $85
**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.

**Books: $15**

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***

# Optional

** 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.
