Membership fees for the following year are collected in October and November during the Council’s annual re-charter process.

Blue jeans are acceptable. All uniform items can be purchased at the Boy Scout office on Northway Rd, Williamsport. For a complete youth uniform, you will need:

If uniform requirements are a concern, please talk to us. We would rather have a kids in scouting than an empty uniform.

Class B T-Shirts
Pack T-Shirts are available for purchase at any time. Cost is $13.50 and we typically have all sizes child small through adult 2XL in stock. Occasionally special orders of long sleeve shirts and sweatshirts will be available.

Summer Camp

Summer camp fees vary from year to year and are published in the spring. It can be assumed that the non-discounted fees will be in the $270 to $300 range. Scouts will have the opportunity to reduce the cost of camp by participating in fundraisers throughout the year.
