Use this button to pay your annual dues via this webpage. We ask that you pay the PayPal fees of approx 3%, so you will see that reflected in the amount.
You can also write a check for $60 at the next Pack Event or mail it to the treasurer. Check ScoutBook for the mailing address.
SY 2021-2022 Cost Notes
The cost to register as a scout at the national and council levels will remain $180 this year and you can apply right on the sign-up for a fee reduction. If this cost presents a problem for you, please speak with the pack leadership and it will be handled discretely.
In the past, we have not paid dues to our Northern Star Council and they have been funded by event fees and the Friends of Scouting campaign. This year, Northern Star Council is going to stop the Friends of Scouting campaign and instead charge a flat fee (there will continue to be event fees for camps and such). This will free up a whole meeting from having to listen to someone ask for money.
We were able to reduce Pack Expenses from $80 per scout to $60 per scout this year and continue to look for ways to be thrifty.
