Pack 735 STRIVES to make scouting the lowest cost experience as possible!
Registration / Application Fee: $150 per scout
Approximately 1/2 of the registration fee is applied to the Pack to fund our local program while the other half goes to the Council and National level. We rely on our Cub Scout Popcorn Sales as our main Fundraiser for the program. If each scout hits their goal of popcorn sold we are fully funded! (usually $300)
Typically no additional charge! This fee is paid to the Council in February to cover our insurance & membership. These charges are covered by your Registration Fees and Popcorn Sales. The Pack also pays for all Leadership position registrations. Again, as long as we hit our Popcorn Sales goal, we don’t have to charge for these fees!
Individual Activity Charges
Paid on an event by event basis. Many of our activities are free, and most of our paid activities qualify for group or reduced admission so there is a savings vs. paying for these events individually (like our Monterey Bay Aquarium Overnighter). We try to make our Pack campouts as low cost as possible so that cost isn't a deterrent to getting out there!
Class A Uniforms
This is the uniform you think of when you think of Cub Scouts. Pack 735's Class A uniform goes from the belt "up" and runs about $92 (+tax) if you buy a shirt with the patches already sewn on. This is the uniform needed for your child to be in proper uniform at our official events. Click here for more info.
Class B Shirts
For many of our events, when a full uniform isn’t practical, but we still want to be identified as cub scouts, we encourage the scouts to wear “class B” t-shirts. Your scout will receive one Pack 735 class B shirt when he/she signs up for scouts. You can buy additional shirts if you desire.
Our Main Fundraiser: Popcorn Sales
Tax Deductions: Most scouting items such as uniforms are tax deductible. Save all scouting receipts even for scouting events and activities. Always check with your tax advisor to see what can or can’t be claimed.
