Cost, Obligation

What does it Cost?


Troop 185 doesn't collect weekly dues from our Scouts.
Boys pay $40 per year. Part of the fee goes toward BSA registration, subscription to Boy's Life magazine and the remainder to the troop treasury. 

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 spilts the "grubmaster fee"  (usually less than $10). 

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