Boy Scouting

What is the Boy Scout age range?

Youth can join a Boy Scout troop who have earned the Arrow of Light rank and are at least 10 years old, or have completed the fifth grade and are at least 10, or who are 11, but not yet 18 years old.


How much does it cost to be a Boy Scout?

The annual registration fee is $33. However, most units will require additional fees to cover the cost of certain activities and program supplies. The Scoutmaster can explain all the details about the unit’s annual fee and exactly what it includes.


How often does a troop meet?

Boy Scouts meet once each week at their troop meeting. Beyond that, it depends on the patrol and troop. A troop may hold a special activity, such as a service project or outdoor experience, in place of one of the weekly meetings or in addition to the weekly meetings.


More information about the Boy Scouting program can be found on the National Boy Scouting page.
