We aren't on a very large budget. I want my son/husband to have some time together, but I feel like Boy Scouts was a bit deceiving. They said it was only $30 or so to sign up for a year... which is totally doable...
but we went to a big Christmas party/meeting thing, and they started loading up with other expenses- his uniform, a book he has to have, payment for some of the monthly activities... just other stuff. Looks like it's gonna cost us a lot more than we anticipated!!!
Is this normal? What is the yearly amount for, if it doesn't cover all the other things? And why weren't they upfront about the other costs?
My son and one other little boy are the only ones in their age group. There's a possibility that there will be a third. So I don't see them being able to do a whole lot of camping, hiking, fishing, etc...plus it's run by women. My husband volunteered to help out but he has to undergo a lot of background checks and whatnot before he's official, so for now it's a bunch of moms. Not that women aren't capable, but I had hoped it would be a dudes thing... more roughin' it and less....quilting. lol. No I don't actually know what they are gonna do... I just wanna make sure this is worth my money!
****Do me a favor.... lets not make this a debate over homosexuality or hate or w/e else. I'm asking about my son and my husband and dues and activities... not your opinions on religion, sexuality, or otherwise.****
