Financial Assistance:

Troop 61 and Mount Baker Council believe that all boys should be able to benefit from Scouting regardless of financial need. The costs of the Scouting can be mitigated through a combination of grants/scholarships, fundraising activities, and gear lending programs.   Troop 61 and Mount Baker Council both use the Opportunity Fund Application for consideration of financial assistance.
