Dues & Scout Accounts

Annual Membership Fees

The Cub Scouting program offers families significant value in preparing young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.  As with most community-based organizations, there are fees required to provide this program to your child.  Fees are paid for Scouting activities and are non-refundable. The Pack maintains a bank account at First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO) with records being kept by our Pack Treasurer.

Value Comparison

When compared to the cost of sports and many other activities, there is no doubt that Cub Scouting delivers great value to its members:

Cub Scouting remains one of the most valuable investments that can be made to support youth. From once-in-a-lifetime adventures to service projects that leave a lasting impact on our communities; Scouting’s year-round program expands horizons and provides young people with a safe and welcoming place to learn, grow, and thrive.


We offer several opportunities during the year for families to help their Scout "pay their way" in the program.  The single biggest opportunity is our Fall Popcorn Sale. Scouts who participate in this opportunity can offset their fees for the year:

Cub Scout Account Policy

The purpose of this policy is to establish the guidelines for maintenance of Cub Scout Accounts for Pack 317. The Cub Scout Account is defined as the individual account for each child in the Pack, funds from which are used to reimburse Scouting-related expenses for the individual child; within the guidelines of this policy the Scout's parents shall direct the activities in their own Scout Account. This policy shall set forth the rules and framework related to account funding, disbursement, and account termination.  Scout Accounts and Pack 317’s General Fund are bookkeeping accounts and not separate bank accounts.

I. Establishing the account

The Cub Scout Account is established when a youth member makes a commission from either Popcorn or Treasure Bread sales. Each child shall have their own Scout Account. The Pack Treasurer shall be responsible for maintaining records related to Scout Accounts. Monies in Scout Accounts shall be reported as liabilities of the Pack.
