The following represents the costs associated with being a member of the Troop:

  • BSA registration = $33 annually
  • Boy's Life Magazine = $12 annually (optional)
  • Troop Spring Assessment = $50
  • Troop Fall Assessment = $50 (can be reduced or waived based upon fundraising activity completed by the Scout)
  • Merchandise package = $25
  • Uniform = Prices set by Scout Shop, see Uniform page for details on what is needed
  • Weekend campout (food/gas)  = $15 (typical)
  • Activity fees = varies based upon specific activity

Troop 1299 believes no Scout should be turned away due to financial needs.  To that end, the Troop maintains a "campership" fund to provide financial assistance when needed.  The only requirement is for the recipient to actively participate in fundraising opportunities.
