Boy Scouts to boost annual youth fees amid wave of sex-abuse lawsuits

Amidst a wave of sex-abuse lawsuits, the Boy Scouts of America is increasing its annual youth membership fee by more than 80%. The group says the move is needed to meet rising operating costs, notably for the liability insurance that covers all official Scouting activities. As of Jan. 1, the annual membership fee for 2.2 million youth members will rise from $33 to $60.

It’s really is sad to see where the bsa is going, as an Eagle Scout I can undoubtedly say it was on of the major factors that got me to where I am today. I think an important part was allowing boys to be boys, integrating girls in will dramatically change the experience in a negative way! Woke culture had claimed another victim.

With the LDS Church dropping out of the BSA, (and I assume removing their vast financial support), I've been wondering how they'll stay afloat. This once-great organization losing their way in the name of being PC is a true American tragedy.

We are so very sorry but we will be raising our fees due to our current legal issues due to the rate at which our leadership molests the children. Please don't leave!
