$65 per scout year, paid in January. This covers the  
Annual BSA Registration Fee ($33), Boys Life ($12), Insurance ($6), Rank Advancement patches, training, etc.
  Activity Fee:


$90 per scout year, paid in January to cover incidental costs of monthly campouts and outings (Reservations, Food, Travel, etc.)


Fund Raiser:  
Annually (October/November) we sell Holiday Wreaths, Poinsettias and Christmas Cacti to supplement the dues for the cost of operating the troop (Scout minimum goal is $500 in sales) . Scouts can cover the costs of their dues and activity fees by selling the minimun and get additional money in their scout accounts for the year.

Troop Outings  
We go weekend camping and do outdoor activities monthly - year round. Participating in the camping outings is important for rank advancement and is strongly encouraged. The Troop Calendar (left menu) lists all the Troop outings and activities for the year. Campout locations and activities are selected by the Scouts at our Annual Planning Conference every spring. 
Summer Camp  

Excellent opportunity to earn Merit Badges, work on Rank Advancement and have lots of FUN!

High Adventure
Each summer we have a High Adventure outing for scouts age 13 and older. Past trips have included Scuba diving at the Scout Sea Base in the Florida Keys, hiking at Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico, and backpacking in the Adirondacks.             Six scouts and two adults are heading to Sea Base in August 2019.
Unique to 207  
We have a strong relationship with the 1st Pickering Scout Troop in Ontario, Canada. We have an annual scout exchange weekend where we alternately visit Canada or host the Canadians in Fairport. We have also included joint troop outings in our program.
Adult Participation:  
We are fortunate to have strong parent involvement in our program.  This is essential to our success. No amount of time or effort is too small. Simply attending occasional meetings and/or weekend outings to assist with the supervision of scouts during planned activities is a great benefit to your son and the other scouts. Many other important 'behind the scenes' activities are available as well. Please consider joining us too. Both you and your son will enjoy the time together.
