We only charge $15 per scout toward registration including Boy's Life
and nothing for adult registration. Our main source of income has
been town-wide paper drives sanctioned by the municipality which is
required to recycle by state law so the tonnage and revenue have been
quite high. This revenue pays for administrative and equipment costs:
awards, badges, training materials, postage, Court of Honor
materials, tents and cookware, etc. Any surplus is applied to trips.
Food at our functions is either pot luck or paid for by a small
admission fee of $3 or $4 per person which more than covers the food
costs at functions. The scouts compete in a judged dessert contests.
Very popular with boys and adults. Excellent stuff!
Scouts and adults are charged $5 to $10 per campout for food and
travel expenses depending upon the length and distance of the trip.
We run a two or three "big trips" (expensive) a year, i.e. white
water rafting, ski trip, trip to Wash D.C., Gettysburg, U.S.S. Mass,
etc. These are mostly paid for by the scout and scouter with some
contribution from the general fund, only if we are running a surplus.
Summer camp, Jambo 97, High adventure are also subsidized only if
there is a surplus.
We try to spend most of the money raised within the year with no more
than a 20% carry over of surplus funds. We never intentionally run an
event at a deficit, however, it sometimes happens. We adjust the
remaining events accordingly.
Hope this helps.

Hello fellow scouters,I am the SM for Troop 317 in Davie, Fla.
Our re-charter is coming up in a few months and we may have to
increase the annual dues of $40 which includes a yearly
subscription to Boys Life, a new troop hat, and other amenities.
Our committee was wondering how much other troops dues amount to
so we can have a better idea as to how much ours should be. Thanx
