Recharter

Recharter is the process where a Scout unit renews its charter as an official part of the Boy Scouts of America. This involves:
  • updating your unit’s roster (including adding/subtracting members, updating contact information for individuals or your unit’s chartering organization)
  • paying registration fees for each youth and adult member to the national Boy Scouts of America organization
  • paying for group insurance coverage
