Where do I get uniforms and how much are they?

All uniform supplies are available through our Quartermaster store.

What kind of commitment is expected from parents? From leaders?

Commitment varies by group, and you’re encouraged to ask this of your Group Scoutmaster(s) when you register. Often parents and guardians may be asked to sign on as leaders in order for the group to function. As we grow, the time commitment will lessen. At the Otter and Timberwolf level, families play a larger role in planning and carrying out adventures and events. As scouts move into the Pathfinder section, they are leading themselves—planning, creating, and implementing their own trips and events—under the guidance of one or two adult leaders.

How often do Groups meet?

Each group varies in frequency, size, and scope. Some sections within a group are meeting bi-weekly; other groups meet monthly

How much does it cost to join?

Registration varies by group. Groups maintain their own finances, paying only a flat yearly fee to BPSA for charter registration.
