The Cost of Scouting
Troop 64 is fortunate not to have to charge dues. The troop is able to fund all insignia, ranks, merit badges, other awards and a subscription to Boy's Life magazine. The troop will pay the annual registration fee for all registered and actively involved adults.
The troop camp outs are scheduled well in advance. The fee for any camp out is based on the camp itself. Troop 64 does it's best to keep all fees to an absolute minimum. We strive to have a $0 balanced budget for all regular outings. We are not a profit making group, nor are we actively seeking to spend all of our money. We make a conscious effort to break even with all events. Generally our camping fees do not exceed $20.00 for the weekend. Summer camp fees depend on whether we go to Goosepond or Hidden Valley. The first costing about $100.00 per scout the second about $225.00 per scout for the week.
The location of any camp is determined by the PLC.
