Recharter Turn-in will be Saturday morning, November 22, from 8:30 til noon at the CUMC Scout Shack

 

All unit leaders must be fully trained for their positions before the unit can recharter. 

 

This means Cubmasters, Scoutmasters, Varsity Coaches and Venturing Advisors must be fully trained or you cannot recharter your unit. Registration fees will be $24 per person.  Insurance remains at $1 and Boy’s Life is still $12. Unit insurance remains $40 per unit (not per scout). Debbie Wedelich is your contact for recharter!
