We charge 50 cents a week, collected by our (youth) Treasurer. And yes,
there is a problem sometimes with collecting and some Scouts get to owe a
lot and I sometimes have to talk with either the boy or the parents.
This is the second year we've done it and I think we're going to keep doing
so. It provides a position of responsibility and its a remidner to all that
they need to budget to pay as they go. Every so often I put a reminder in
the Troop newsletter so parents are reminded that we collect dues so they
aren't surprised if they find their son owes us some money.
