Membership and Joining
Trail Life Troop

Membership and Joining

Our membership is open to boys ages 5 to 18, who agree to the Trail Life USA Membership Standards. Our local membership year runs September to August, but we welcome new members throughout the year.

We generally encourage prospective members to visit one of our meetings before joining, although members can also join directly. If you are interested in visiting, you can let us know by filing out our visit form.

If you have general questions about membership, you can reach our membership team via email at .

We also have full instructions on joining the troop available for your review. Our members join our local troop first, and then register with the national organization.

Membership Costs

There are several costs and fees associated with membership:

  • Local dues (annual)
    • $30 per family + $45 per Woodland Trailman and $70 per Nav/Adv Trailman
  • National registration (roughly $38 per year)
  • Participation in local fundraiser, or payment of buyout
  • Purchase of uniform (via traillifeusa.com or from the troop), and handbook (once per level)
  • Campout & activity fees (which primarily covers food costs)

Our dues have been newly reduced for 2024-25 as a result of new funding provided by the church.

We desire to make sure our ministry is available to any boy regardless of their financial means, and that cost not be a barrier to participation. Please inquire about scholarship and other opportunities that may be available.
