Dues for Pack 122 are based on an academic year calendar, starting in August. Annual dues for Pack 122 are $100 for Lion Scouts, $190 for new pack members, and $150 for all other scouts. The higher dues for new pack members covers the pack t-shirt and additional patches. These dues cover all materials for the scout with the exception of his Cub Scout Button-up shirt and hat/belt. Pack 122 does not require official scout shorts or pants as part of the uniform. The hat is not required and the belt is technically not, but useful for awards. Pack dues will cover the scout’s dues to the council, subscription to Boy’s Life magazine, Neckerchief and slide, all pack awards, a pack t-shirt, and nearly all pack activities.
Transfer scouts and scouts starting late in the year may receive alternate payment plans and schedules. Those will be discussed by pack leadership and a mutually agreeable solution will be sought.
Pack dues must be paid in full or a deposit of $50 no later than the September Pack Meeting. If a $50 deposit is provided, then payment must be made in full by December 31st. This will allow scouting families the opportunity to participate in popcorn sales to assist with those balances. Dues not in good standing will lead to the scout being unable to participate in any activities which have an associated cost and suspension of awards until that scout account is brought into good standing.
Popcorn sales occur in the fall and your scout has the opportunity to generate credit for their pack account. Typically popcorn sales generate approximately a 25% return to the scout and also provides rewards directly to the scout, e.g. gift certificates to scout store, pocket knives, squirt guns. Typically the credit back to the scout’s pack account is used for camp, which costs between $175 and $200 depending on the camp they participate in and the dates of the visit. This credit can be used to pay dues or any other pack expenses that are settled to your scout account; Circuit of Fun (Colts Tickets, Monster Jam, Indians tickets, etc.), extra t-shirts, blue and gold dinner tickets, etc.
If your scout graduates with his Arrow of Light from Pack 122 and moves to a local fully accredited Boy Scout Troop, we will work with their new troop to transfer existing credit balances on scout accounts to them to assist with similar expenses as a Boy Scout. Outstanding balances with Pack 122 must be settled up by graduation. Balances are not transferable to other scouts, but can be used on siblings. Balances hold no cash value outside of Pack 122 Scouting Activities. If your scout drops out of cub-scouts and does not immediately transfer into a local Boy Scout troop, this balance has no cash value and cannot be recovered.
The Pack 122 Treasurer will attempt to collect on all past-due accounts via any reasonable means available. This includes but is not limited to direct mail, e-mail, phone, personal visit, and 3rd party collection agency. Please be completely assured that it is not the goal or intent to turn accounts over to collection agencies, but we will not hesitate when amiable attempts at collection are completely ignored.
Questions are welcome and can be addressed directly to the
Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org
