Cost

scouts

Currently, our annual pack dues are $200 for Tigers  - Arrow of Light (1st - 5th grade scouts). A deposit of $50 must be paid upon registration of your scout. Lion Scouts (Kindergarteners) will pay dues of $75 annually.

Parents are also responsible for purchasing the scout's uniform. This can cost anywhere from $60-$100. Visit http://www.scoutstuff.org/ for details.

There are additional fees associated with scouting including camping, over nighters, and special events. Parents will be informed of the costs of these activities as they arise.

If your scout actively participates in fundraising efforts, you may only have to pay the initial registration cost of $50 and for the uniform out of your pocket.   

 

Excerpt from Pack 39 New Caney By-Laws

Section 6. Financial Obligations

  1. A single registration fee will be determined at the beginning of each Scout year and is in part based on the operating budget for the Pack. This year's budget and registration fee is summarized on Exhibit A. The balance of the budget for the year is generated through periodic fund-raisers.
  2. It is the goal of the Pack Committee to hold as few fund-raisers as possible, however it is important that each family supports our fund-raising efforts when they are held. Families are expected to participate in the primary fund-raisers as designated by the Pack Committee. In a typical year there is one such fund-raiser, which is a Bake Sale. Additional fund-raisers may be called for depending on the state of the Pack treasury.
  3. A portion of the registration fee is allocated to cover the Den Activity Fee and is available upon request from the Treasurer. It is the Den Leader's responsibility to manage the fund and maintain a record of how it is spent and should be available to any Den Parent or the Pack Committee upon request. The Den Activity fee will be allocated when the Pack Registration fee has been paid in full.
  4. The cost of the Cub Scout uniform is the responsibility of the family. The Pack has established a Uniform Standard, as detailed in Section 11, which all Cub Scouts are expected to meet.
  5. The cost of additional activities such as overnighters and camping will be the responsibility of the parent.
