Every year, from October through December 1st, all units (packs, troops, crews, & posts) renew their affiliation with Scouting. This process allows units to update their adult and youth members' information, pay registration fees, and renew the Scout Life magazine subscriptions. In an effort to provide uninterrupted programs to your Scouts, please work on and complete your unit renewal in a timely manner. To view a tutorial on Internet Recharter download this guide. A video for internet recharter is posted here. Online recharters make it easier to add or remove individuals as well as track the required trainings.

  • Important considerations for your units recharter.
