How Can We Help?
The Recharter Process
If this is your first time using the online re-charter portal, we encourage you to contact your unit commissioner for a walk-through of re-charter or review the resources available to you on this page.
How-To for Online Recharter
*On-time online charters are paid online with digital approvals prior to 7/31/22.
New members (Youth and Adults) join independently of recharter and adults have completed Youth Protection Training (YPT) since 8/1/20.
2. Pay online with a credit card with a 3% transaction fee
3. Pay directly to the council office. (THIS IS THE MOST EXPENSIVE OPTION) The national website says there is not a fee for this… because national BSA is not collecting a fee, but there is a $25 per person offline registration convenience fee. If you select this option your Scout unit will be charged an additional $25 per person listed on your roster.
NOTE: We have been told once your unit selects an option from the above 3, it cannot be changed…so Pick option 1 or 2 (but we recommend #1)
Units are encouraged to verify all Scouts and Scouters are registered with the unit prior to beginning the online re-charter.
Online applications are strongly encouraged for all youth members who need to be added to unit rosters to both speed the process up and ensure complete accurate information is recorded.
Online Registrations Recharter Cycle
All new online registrations will pay for the rest of this charter cycle (through 7/31/22) and all of next year (7/31/23).
This is beneficial to units as they will not need to revisit new families for additional fees in a few months. The unit should list each new member on their recharter. The new member will show as “pre-paid”, so fees will not need to be collected again!
Please account for 1-week of processing time for any new youth or adult paper applications turned in to Council up through 7/15.
After this date, please account for up to 2-weeks of processing time for paper applications until recharter is complete.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is committed first and foremost to keeping youth safe. Part of that commitment includes continually updating our youth protection policies to help ensure we are always on the forefront of youth safety.
As you know, one of the BSA’s many barriers to abuse is a mandatory criminal background check during the adult volunteer application process. The BSA will now also perform periodic rechecks of criminal backgrounds to support the continued safety of youth in our programs.
All adult volunteers must complete the Background Check Disclosure form located here. Reminder notifications have been shared with adults volunteers and key unit leadership if we do not currently have a current form on file.
