We have dues of $10/month. Most of that covers food for campouts,
whether or not they go (the troop uses the excess dues to pay for camp
fees and adult meals on the campouts...kinda as an incentive to get more
adults to go and our adults never ask for fuel reimbursement). Our
scribe keeps record of who has paid and who hasn't. We tried having the
food buyer collect money from each scout for campout food but he usually
got stiffed by guys not showing up for campouts and not paying.
Our scribe is pretty good about keeping the scouts up to date on what
they owe. Last year we made it a requirement for summer camp that the
scout could not attend camp if he was not current with his dues. It was
amazing how much money came in, especially for the high adventure camp.
