Who Pays for Scouting?

Scouting benefits the youth and his parents, the sponsoring institution and the community.  Scouting contributes to the general welfare of all people, just as does a formal education.  The local Boy Scout Council does not render service directly to individual Scout members, but rather offers a program to community institutions and organizations, who sponsor Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Crews and Explorer Posts.  The Boy Scouts of America is unlike those agencies rendering district services to individuals who are sole beneficiaries.

The Youth and His Parents:  They pay for the youth's uniform, insignia, equipment, camp fees, unit dues and activities, transportation costs, handbooks and the national membership fee.  The youth are encouraged to earn their own expenses as far as possible.

The Sponsoring Institution:  It provides volunteer leaders, who give their time and pay their own expenses.  It also provides a meeting place, utilities and helps underwrite the cost of unit activities, in some cases.  The institution is chartered annually by the Boy Scouts of America to the Scouting program with one or more units, which belong to them and for which they accept responsibility for getting the program to the youth.

The Community:  It provides basic administration, office and professional services and year-round camping facilities, which enable sponsoring institutions to effectively utilize the Scouting program.

Each of these groups is responsible for paying its share of the cost of Scouting.  No one group should be asked or expected to assume the share which is the responsibility of others.  It is for these reasons that we have an annual Friends of Scouting Campaign.
