Boys don’t need to be sponsored to join Boy Scouts. They need to find a local troop and be of the right age. There is no invitation involved. A registration form is required, and there area annual dues which can vary a bit from troop to troop. Our troop charges about $40 annually, of which part of the dues payment stays with the troop and the rest goes to our district council. Working from memory now, I believe the boys have to be 11 or to have finished the 5th grade. Many come from Cub Scouts, and cross over about this time of year in their 5th grade school year. Cub Scouting is not a requirement, however.

Thank you. I’ve been wondering for some time. As I remember the local troop was far away from where I lived and the boys in the troop all lived in that area.
