Shame on You Boy Scouts of America ! Baden Powell would be Ashamed of You !

In 2009, it cost a boy to be a Boy Scout $10 a year.

In 2010 the BSA abruptly increased it to $15 a year –an increase of 50%.

This week, they announced another increase to $24 a year–without warning — a 60% increase for national Dues.

That is an increase 140% in four years.

Greed ?  Mismanagement ?  Loss of membership due to “policy changes?”

I don’t know.

But this will limit recruiting in families of lower income.  It isn’t fair and it isn’t what Scouting stands for.

Scouting already got expensive already with uniforms, books, and camping gear.

This is uncalled for.

There are 2.6 million Scouts. That’s a lot of money.

Somebody owes us an explanation.
