IMPORTANT TROOP MEMO
TO: All Registered Scouts, Parents and Registered Adult Leaders
RE: 2015 Troop Dues – payable now
FR: Troop Committee DT: October 14, 2014
To register with the BSA Troop 200 for the 2015 calendar year, membership dues for this year will be:
Scouts—$75 (same as ‘14, $10 less than ‘13 and $25 less than ‘12 though National BSA increased $9 in ’14)
Scouters*—$24 (same as 2014)
Here is the official Flyer in PDF form. Please see Don Burton or Doc Wehrum with questions about Okama.
Okama 23 is updated to exceed the current requirements for all Boy Scout Leader and Troop Committee
fundamental training courses, in the recommended time: Scoutmaster and Assistant Scoutmaster Specific
Training, Introduction to Outdoor Leader Skills, and Troop Committee Specific Training (will be offered to
participants’ Committee at a time of their choosing).
Everything that Blackfoot training has been in the Spring, Okama always is in the Fall. This type of
training is still the best interactive, indoor and outdoor learning experience, taught by an experienced and
enthusiastic staff. This enhanced course allows Parents, Scoutmasters, Assistant Scoutmasters, Committee
Chairmen, Chartered Organization Representatives, Committee Members, Webelos Leaders and Den Leaders to “live” Scouting and learn by doing. It helps Webelos Leaders, Cub Leaders and parents to prepare early for their sons’ “Crossing Over” into Scouting. The course provides great fun, new friends and outstanding benefits for all Scouters age 18 and older.
