Scout Cost Survey
Are you curious what a typical year of Scouting really costs? I am.
There's been quite a bit of chatter about the national BSA membership fee increase that goes into effect in a couple months.
Jumping from $33 to $60 is a huge percentage increase (like 90%!), but I expect it is more of a blip in the grand scheme of Scouting expenses.
I created an anonymous survey that asks for your input. No email or other personal info is needed, just your honest best estimates.
I'll share the results here in a couple weeks - data such as the average council fee, average unit fee, average cost of high adventure treks.

We charge $75 for the entire year for our Pack. That money paid the BSA fee and our membership fee. And we had just started including a handbook and neckerchief and things that were included for our members with that fee... But I guess we won't be able to do that anymore! Since we already told our members the fee for this year is $75, we will only have $15 left for everything else! That includes pinewood derby car, regatta boat, pins and beltloops, etc....Nov 07, 2019 - Scouter Paul
Some councils are covering the national fee increase for this first year.
