2020 BSA Membership Fees FAQ plus Credit Cards Accepted Reminder

Our Longhorn Council Scouting units have the ability to pay for their online registration and recharter with credit cards.  The BSA National online system collects online registration fees for us and provides a receipt with a detailed breakdown of the charges.

There are a few important factors to be aware of.  The date the application is submitted NOT the credit card transaction date is what is used to tabulate fees.  So, don’t let your applications sit in the online payment system pending payment because the clock is ticking.

The Longhorn Council made the decision not to increase the yearly $15.00 insurance fee.  The pro-rated amount will remain at $1.25 per month.  Not all units recharter at the same time, or on the same month, so the number of months pro-rated will vary by unit.

Paying with Pay Pal is also an option for payments in Scoutbook:  READ MORE about Pay Pal options for units.

Stay in contact with your District Executive and Unit Commissioner for any future updates or changes.


Yours in Scouting,
