T69 collects dues annually from both scouts (youth) and scouters (adult leaders)
The amount for 2024 has significantly increased. National and Council dues is now $160.
Troop dues have been $40 for returning scouts and $90 for crossover scouts. In an effort to mitigate the effect of National and Council dues raising we are keeping out Troop dues at $40 for all scouts this year. Troop dues are used for supplies, awards, upkeep, storage, and replacement of gear, etc. We are hopeful that Fundraising could significantly reduce dues going forward in 2025.
Total due $200
For scouters (adult leaders, scouter reserve)
National dues have increased to $60.
Please pay dues by September 30 (If this is a financial hardship OR you are leaving the program please let us know)
