All Participants must register for outings and pay deposits ahead of time (Scouts and Adults)

Posted by R.Monette on May 13 2015 - 5:36am
  • In the past the Troop had boys sign up for events and not attend, as a result a deposit system was started.
  • The Troop now collects a small deposit to ensure participants are serious about attending (in most cases, this only cover a portion of the cost the Troop actually pays).
  • "Register by dates" have been added to each outing on the Troop's Calendar to try to avoid this in the future.
  • These dates may change based on the number of available camp sites, or the availability of slots for participants, and other factors out of the Troops control.
  • Outing Registration is not guaranteed until the deposit is paid (signing up for an outing is just the first step).
