Pack Dues

Pack Dues are the used to help pay for programming, scout advancements, and other expenses incurred throughout the year. Dues are paid every September at the beginning of the Scouting Year. Some examples of what we use dues money for include:

  • BSA Registration and Insurance Fees
  • Boys' Life Magazine Subscription
  • Scout Advancements (Badges, Belt Loops, etc.)
  • Pack and Den Meeting Programming (Supplies, Speaker Fees, etc.)
  • Pine Wood Derby Race
  • Blue and Gold Dinner
  • Neckerchief and woggle or Lion handbook and T-Shirt

Currently our Dues are set at $130 per scout annually for Tigers, Wolves, Bears, and Webelos. For our new Lion Kindergarten program the dues are only $65 for the year. Because the Lion den does not meet as often as our other dens or do as many activities the annual cost is reduced for those scouts until they cross over to become Tigers! Those families that have multiple scouts enrolled in the pack we now extend a discount to the siblings. The first scout will be enrolled at the normal $130 cost, but all of his subsequent brothers will be enrolled at only $100 each for the year (Lion Siblings would be eligible for $60 dues).


We also understand that times can be tough and we don't want a financial hardship to stop any boy from participating in Scouting. Other arrangements can be worked out on an individual basis. We can work out monthly payment plans and there are scholarship funds available at the Greater Niagara Frontier Council to cover much of the enrollment fee and by the Pack itself to cover some of the other activities fess. Please discuss this with the Treasurer, or any other Pack Committee member to make other arrangements. We will not turn away any interested youth based solely on their ability to pay.

If you are joining in the middle of the Scout Year, our dues are prorated depending on the month you are joining. See the chart below to determine what you would owe.

New scouts joining in the late Spring or Summer can optionally elect to pay their entire dues for the next Scouting Year ($130 for the first scout, $100 for each brother after that) and get the remaining of the current year for free! For instance, two new brothers from the same family join the Pack in May during a Spring Recruitment event. If they pay $230 ($130 for the first Scout, $100 for the brother) we will waive the normal $73 ($43 for the first Scout, $33 for the brother) that would normally be due for joining in the middle of the year and the brothers will be eligible to participate in any Pack activities for the remainder of the summer as well as the entire next year!
