All new Scout Families will receive a Troop 615 Membership Packet that includes:


  • Application & Medical Release Form
  • Troop Guidelines
  • Troop Resource Sheet
  • Current Calendar
  • Current Fees

Many resources and talents are required for the Troop to have a quality program.  We expect that each Scout has at least one parent or guardian who can contribute to the Troop and its activities in at least one of the following ways:


  • providing leadership on camping trips,
  • leading an Expo event
  • serving as a Merit Badge Counselor,
  • coordinating special events,
  • serving on Boards of Review,
  • providing transportation,
  • serving as a Troop Committee Officer,
  • or an Assistant Scoutmaster.

If the Troop Resource Questionnaire does not address your abilities, discuss with the Committee Chairman or Scoutmaster ways you can assist the Troop.

We would like each boy to have a good Scouting experience. Should a question arise or problems develop, please contact the Troop Committee Chairman, the Scoutmaster, or any of the Assistant Scoutmasters. We will try to resolve the situation. Unless otherwise informed, the Leaders must assume that all is well within the Troop.

Initial Membership

Each Scout must submit a completed Boy Scouts of America membership application signed by a parent or guardian and the registration fee paid prior to participation in any Scout activities. Since the Troop renews its charter every December, the re-chartering fee is collected by the first of December.  The Troop Committee sets the registration fee each year.  Boys joining the Scout Troop for the first time shall be charged a membership fee of $12.00 x number of months remaining in the year (or until the Scout turns 18) and an initiation fee of $25.00 (to cover the cost of neckerchief, Troop number and Epaulet Loops.

Annual Membership (Re-charter)

The current cost to renew membership is $144 (or prorated if turning 18 during the year).
