2021 Recharter Information

Posted on Nov 19 2020 - 9:20pm

It is time for the 2021 Pack Recharter. BSA Recharter is the process of renewing the chapter that allows our Cub Scout Pack to serve kids in Kindergarten through fifth grade. The Pack will need to be rechartered by December 1st. In order to recharter, each Scout family must pay their annual dues. 

Recharter Fees for 2021 will stay at $175, including Boys life Magazine. Of that amount, $150 is sent to the the National BSA or the Orange County Council to pay for insurance, facilities, and programs.  There was a $6 increase in the National BSA Registration Fee.  Due to COVID-19, the Pack has decided to pay for that increase out of reserve funds and reduce the Pack 623 required dues.  Pack 623 dues have been reduced to $25 per Scout to cover the approximately $150 per Scout Budget. The difference is covered by fundraising efforts, voluntarily fundraising opt out donations, and reserves.

National BSA Registration Fee   $       66  $       60
Orange County Program Fee           60           60

Recharter Fees are due by November 20, 2020.  Checks should be made payable to Pack 623. Checks can be dropped off in person Space Derby or mailed/dropped off at the Shirah home (19225 Echo Pass Rd). We also accept payment through Venmo account @Pack623.  If it asks you to verify the last four digits of the phone number, it is: 2625. If you are not continuing in Scouts for 2021, please send an email to or to let us know.

*We recommend that families with multiple Scouts only buy one magazine subscription.
