How Much Does Scouting Cost?

  • Every youth or adult member pays a $24 registration fee to the Boy Scouts of America
  • The uniform, handbook, camps, and camping equipment will cost extra
  • Council and unit fundraising may help with those costs, while also teaching your child the importance of self-sufficiency and "earning their own way"
  • Some individual Scouting units locally will also charge annual dues on top of that (ask your leader)
It is the position of the Capitol Area Council that money should not keep a young person from enjoying the Scouting program. If you’d like more information about this, please contact Director of Field Service, Will Gregorcyk, at (512) 617-8633 or
