APPLICATION & DUES - 2022

Each year Pack 673 spends around $4,000 to bring our program to our almost 50 Scouts and their families. This includes all belt loops, pins, badges, den leader supplies, Pinewood Derby cars, Raingutter Regatta Boats (or Space Derby Rockets), camping fees, Winter Day costs, Crossover/Blue & Gold expenses, rank neckerchiefs, and other supplies or events that happen at Pack meetings.

In order to cover these costs, we charge dues and earn money through Popcorn sales. Only a small portion of the dues you pay actually goes back to the Pack. Here is a break down of the dues:

  • National Level: The National annual dues per Scout is $75 this year. Additionally, there is a $25 one-time initial registration fee per Scout for new scouts.
  • Council Level: The Council fees are $60 per Scout and are paid through the Pack.
  • Pack Level: The Pack annual dues per Scout are $25. For new scouts, this $25 is waived to offset the one-time initial registration cost of a new scout.


For New Scouts:

National Dues: $75

One-Time New Scout: $25

Pack Dues and Council Fees: $60

Total Cost: $160

Optional Scout Life Subscription $15


For Returning Scouts:

National Dues: $75

One-Time New Scout: $0

Pack Dues and Council Fees: $85

Total Cost: $160

Optional Scout Life Subscription $15


POPCORN SALES

And POPCORN is a HUGE way to support the Pack! This is where the Pack earns most of the money for Pack activities. For those scouts who sell $700 of popcorn, a $60 refund from the Council goes back to YOUR pocket - in addition to the Popcorn Party and other prizes for your Scout at that Top Seller level.

We look forward to having your scout in Pack 673 on our adventures!
