Troop 54 Scouts take a break on the trail in the Green Mountains (August 2010).
Initial Registration Fee
The initial registration fee for new Scouts is based on the month joining.
Troop dues are $182/year and payable by November 1 for the Scout to be
registered for the following year:
Pay $182 On-line - first Scout in family
Pay $167 On-line - additional Scout in same family
See our Dues & Uniform Purchase document for details.
You can pay dues in person (cash, check, credit card or Android Pay accepted) or online via the link
You will need to purchase uniform items and a handbook.
Other costs depend on which activities you participate in. Typical costs:
- Registration Fees - Most events have a registration fee, usually including the food cost. These
vary but are typically around $20-30.
- Camping Gear - You will need to get camping gear. Exactly what you need depends on what camping trips
you are participating in. The troop has some tents, stoves and cookware, so new Scouts only need to worry
about personal gear.
- Merit Badges - Completing a merit badge generally involves purchasing a merit badge booklet. Some merit
badges call for purchasing materials to make something.
- Summer Camp - If you attend this, a week at an overnight summer camp will
likely be your largest single Scouting
expense. Compared to the cost of other camps, Scouts BSA camp is a great value.
Our Campership Policy describes financial assistance Troop 54 can provide to its eligible members.
For summer camp, the host council generally offers campership to eligible participants.
