Annual Registration Fee and Other Costs

  • Unit Dues – The amount varies by unit.  Some unit charge annual dues that include BSA yearly registration fee.  Each unit has its own process for handling advancement and activity costs.  Some include the costs in their annual dues, some raise the funds by product sales, and some have families that cover the cost of the specific activities in which they participate.
