Unit & Member Renewal Process




Families today have many options, but only Scouting provides a safe and fun atmosphere where a kid can be a kid all while preparing them to become an even better adult. Scouting is not only an investment in your child, but it's also building a better Kansas City!

2024 fees



Using our council exclusive ScoutPay option, families can login and pay for their yearly Scouting membership individually.

ScoutPay is is a convenient and easy way to enjoy the Scouting adventure and manage your yearly membership dues. Families can make a one-time payment or spread out payments over 2,3, or even 4 months.

If your family chooses to use our ScoutPay option, remember to notify your unit's recharter representative and submit your receipt in order to be included in your unit's 2023-2024 recharter.

How to Recharter As A Unit

New this year, all units will recharter using the new Internet Rechartering 2.0 module. Using this traditional recharter model, the unit will collect all fees from families.

How it Works:
A representative from each unit will be identified as the renewal processor. This individual will log-in to the Internet Rechartering 2.0 module to complete the unit's charter through the BSA's Internet Advancement portal. The process will identify returning members, add new members and update information for unit members.

How to Renew Your Charter:

  • The unit leader, chartered organization representative, committee chairman, or unit designee logs on to start and complete the process
  • Once completed, print the charter and payment page and bring to the Heart of America Council Service Center for processing
  • Be sure to submit your charter and include all new member applications, the correct fees (one check or unit account authorization)
  • You can also contact your District Executive for help or to submit or collect your unit's recharter
