Troop 97 FAQ

Question #6—Is T97 more expensive than most other troops?

Perhaps because we put our expenses 'up front', or because people hear our 'dues' are over $200, they may think Troop 97 is more expensive than troops with lower 'dues'. The reality is that Scouting in Troop 97 costs less than most sports programs or most troops. But it helps to look at ALL the annual costs of Scouting (also contained in our PDF brochure below):
