Does $125 pay for a whole year of Scouting? Not really, unfortunately. The pack needs to raise another $165/scout to pay for important fun activities like the pinewood derby, swim party, family camp, Blue & Gold banquet, and all patches and awards scouts earn each year. This money comes from annual fundraising activities.
