Steve Horvath asked about den dues ....
Our Cub Pack charges the registration, and this year have
collected a $5 pack fee to help support us, particularly for
the period up to when the Popcorn money comes in. We raise
enough from Popcorn to run the pack for the rest of the
Dues are collected in January, except for new scouts, who
are pro-rated for the 5 months. Collecting dues at each den
or pack meeting would be a nightmare!
A few years ago, we started charging $5 up front for the big
excursions - weekend camping, trips to air shows, which
makes sure that people turn up.
It is VERY important to set up a scholarship program and
uniform recycling - and make sure that those in most need
have access - outfitting a cub can be the make or break for
some families as to whether they enter scouting!
