The Council has added a $19 dollar a month fee, per scout. Its CEO makes over 200k a year and over half of its 4 million budget goes to salaries. None of this money ever makes it to your unit where most of the work is done. They even take a portion of your fundraising money, while paying the fee.
My son was a Tiger Cub this past year and he will be Wolf this year. The weekly pack meetings along with the Cuboree have allow him to explore experiences not covered in other programs he is a part of. He loves being in the outdoors now and continues to amaze us with his knowledge which he amassed through his program last year.
