Annual Recharter Fees Due

Posted on Nov 3 2022 - 1:04am

"Recharter season" is the time when we recommit to the Scouting movement with our annual registration and fee/dues to the national Scouts BSA organization, our local Central Florida Council (CFC) and Colonial District, and our Troop 617 for the coming year.

Starting in 2021, the CFC moved to a single "Program Fee" which includes the national BSA registration fee, the CFC insurance fees, the district level funding, and more.  The Program Fee also includes, for Scouts BSA units, registration fees and discounts for several different events, including the fall and spring camporees, University of Scouting, NYLT, Wood Badge, and more.

For 2023, the program fee due to District/Council/National has increased by $3 to $84 for adults (Assistant Scoutmasters and Committee Members) and $126 for Scouts.  The Troop 617 annual dues are again unchanged at $52.

Based on the deadlines for us to submit the fees and paperwork to CFC, we need to receive all recharter payments no later than Monday November 14th.  This will allow the Troop Treasurer (Cheryl Hill) and Troop Recharter Coordinator (Dai Jones) time to process the payments and the recharter records.

Zelle Payments Are Now Active!

We have finally be able to activate Zelle as a payment method for the Troop!

This is exciting since Zelle is supported by many major banks directly in their banking apps, and allows for near-instantaneous transfers with NO FEES!

Medical Forms - Action Required!

Posted on Jan 5 2021 - 9:25am

On January 1, 2021, the former version of the BSA medical form became invalid, and ALL scouts and scouters are required to use the updated version of the Medical Form.  If your most recent medical form submission was not on the new form (the 2019 printing with sections A, B1, B2, and C) , please complete and submit two (2) copies of the new form to Jackie Lopina as soon as possible.  Also, please note that you cannot attach additional pages; you must complete the form sections as shown - this includes the immunization section.  You can find the new form on our web site here.

Please note that scouts and scouters will NOT be able to participate in activities unless they have provided a new medical form with at least sections A, B1, and B2 (these are the sections that are completed by the scout/scouter/parents).
