What's the Cost?
/Dollar Sign.pngThe BPSA-AB, as well as the other BPSA Councils across Canada, strongly believe that the cost of Scouting should be as low as possible. We believe that Scouting should not just be for the rich, but that it should be available for everyone.

Our annual registration cost (2017-2018), per person, is $40.00, effective March 31, 2017, although Groups may charge slightly more depending on how they choose to finance their operations.

BPSA-AB keeps its costs down to the bare bones by being 100% volunteer operated. Our uniforms and badges are sold at cost with no mark-up. The annual registration covers our insurance premiums and a minimal amount for administration.

Already a Scout Group with Another Organization?/Weigh Scales.png
Please note that the BPSA-AB is not seeking to expand by taking groups from any other organization. Each organization has its own merit and style.  The BPSA-AB follows the original program that Baden-Powell provided along with his love for the great outdoors.

However, if you feel that what we offer better meets the needs of your local area, and more importantly your youth, then we would be pleased to help you, on an individual and private basis, to make a decision on whether or not traditional Scouting is for you.
