What Your Dues Cover
In the Central New Jersey Council, all Cub Packs register with council in January, for the period of January to December. Similar to most Cub Packs organized to operate from September to June, corresponding to the usual school year, Pack 44 registers all new and returning Cub Scouts in September.
Boys who register with the pack for the first time in September, such as new Tiger Scouts, pay a small additional amount covering the months of September through December. Boys who join the pack after the pack has registered are charged a pro-rated amount, depending upon the month they join.
Pack 44 includes the cost of several scheduled Pack events as part of your annual dues. This is in addition to the cost of registering your son with the Council and the cost of Boy's Life. Your Pack Committee believes that this helps you by allowing you to write a single check, rather than having to write a check for each event, and helps the pack by making our bookkeeping less complicated.
