Join Our Pack!

Thanks for your interest! The more youth that join, the more fun and friends for all.

Online Application

Scouting BSA has an online application for both youth and adult volunteers. If you have any questions please contact us!

  • Annual membership renews on the date you joined, each year.
  • Membership carries over into Scouting BSA (ages 10.5 and up) or other Scouting programs.


  • The annual national Scouting BSA fee pays for insurance, and more.
    ($85 as of this writing; see that link for details)
  • A one-time fee applies only to new Scouts, not annual renewals.
    ($25 as of this writing)
  • Annual Council dues are collected by Scouting BSA.
    ($85 as of this writing)
    This pays for council staff, council camps/resources, rank badges, adult training, insurance, etc. See the Council site, then click “Registration Fees at a Glance” for a current breakdown of national and council fees.
  • Annual Pack 101 dues ($25 as of this writing) are collected separately in October every year.
    This primarily pays for each den’s events/expenses, as well as awards and activities. The first partial year is waived.
  • Registration fees are significantly reduced for adults.
    ($77 as of this writing)


  • Parents/guardians do not need to register.
  • It is helpful if they do, as Scouting requires a minimum number of registered/trained adults at events, including a Den Leader for each age group.
  • Registered adults must complete Youth Protection Training (a free online video course and basic test).
  • The application includes a simple background check.
