Troop Costs and Fees

Annual Dues
Payment is due to the troop treasurer by the end of September each year.  The actual amount is subject to change at any time, but for the 2008-2009 Scouting year the dues were $225.  This amount covers the costs of a Scout's annual registration with the Boy Scouts of America, a subscription to Boy's Life, troop dues, patches, Courts of Honor and campouts.  Annual dues do not cover any of the costs of summer camp and high adventure trips.

Crossover Scout Dues
Webelos usually crossover to Boy Scouts in February.  The troop offers a proprated fee for crossover Scouts.

Note: Please submit a check for the amount due to the troop treasurer, and make the check payable to "BSA Troop 467."

Boy Scouts wear the Class "A" uniform for Scout meetings, official or formal occasions and the Class "B" uniform for more casual events. Class "B" shirts costs $20-$30 and are usually furnished through the troop.  All other items may be purchased at the Scout Shop located at 1800 Circle 75 Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339 or online at scoutstuff.org.
