I am working on a database (?) that shows the costs of Scouting compared
with other youth activities (sports in particular), so I have some solid
information to show parents and others when we talk about this matter. this
all started with the argument about Scout uniforms being expensive, but
seems to have gotten a life of its own:)
items to be included are
a. registration to participate in the activity
b. summer camp (like b-ball camp, etc.)
c. uniform costs
d. # practices per week
e. any other costs you think should be included
I need figures for youth sports in the Seattle area: hockey, football,
baseball, basketball, soccer are the big ones that come to mind right now.
thank you for your help.
