In order to maintain our troop reservations, we must make our troop payments on time. For all deadlines missed by scout a $5.00 per Scout late fee must be paid after the above due dates. New Scouts joining the troop or crossing over after January 31st will not be penalized, but will need to meet the future payment schedules as posted on time.
