What does it Cost?


Troop 185 doesn't collect weekly dues from our Scouts.

Boys pay $100 per year. Part of the fee goes toward BSA registration and the remainder to the troop treasury. Boys can offset their dues by volunteering at troop fundraising events which include volunteering semi-annual triathlons .

Other Costs

Camping Trips: Scouts pay for food and other nominal camping fees for each trip. Boys are separated in the patrols which purchase and prepare their own food. Each member of the patrol splits the "grubmaster fee" (usually less than $10).

Special camping trips like the Fall and Spring Camporees, Ziplining, etc... require a separate fee to cover the costs of camp rental and activities.
