Youth Membership Fees to Increase

The National Council, Boy Scouts of America’s Executive Board, at its annual business meeting, recently approved a youth membership increase that will be phased in over a three-year period. They also approved several increases to the national fee structure.

Scouting is one of the only youth programs that has continued during this pandemic. We can continue to operate because of the strong commitment of the volunteer and staff leaders of the Patriots’ Path Council.

We will continue to work on options for your units to fundraise in order to raise the necessary funds to meet the larger membership fee costs imposed on us by the National Council. Please also be aware that while the National membership fee is increasing, Patriots’ Path Council has already committed to not raising our council-level youth activity fee and insurance fee for 2021, our fourth consecutive year of not increasing fees to our families.
