Internet Rechartering

Charter Renewal for Packs, Troops, Teams, Crews, and Ships
A representative of each unit can complete the paperwork for renewing a charter online. From Internet Rechartering, you can indicate returning members, add new members, and update information for an individual or the chartered organization.

How to Use:

Anyone who wants to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering tutorial below.


To renew a charter online: 

1.       By October, select an adult to be the renewal processor for Internet Rechartering.  UNITS SHOULD NOT BEGIN WORKING ON THEIR RECHARTER UNTIL 60 DAYS PRIOR TO THE RECHARTER DATE.

2.       During the month of October we recommend the renewal processor collect all recharter information including new youth and adult applications (with signatures). Also the renewal processor should go through the tutorial website by clicking on the button above.

3.     Conduct a membership review of adults and youth. Submit all applications before December 31, 2018.

4.    January 3, 2019 - The renewal processor (your unit) will receive the recharter code required to get started. Return to this page and click the RECHARTER NOW button above to begin the process.

5.        Select First-Time User or Returning User and enter the unit access code.

6.       Select the unit type and enter the unit number.

7.       Create or enter a password as instructed.

8.       Complete the information requested on each screen. You can stop at any time, log off the system, and begin again where you left off by reentering your access code and password.

9.       When you’ve completed all the information to recharter the unit, and before you click “Submit to Council” you should click “Roster Review”. A printed copy of the charter renewal application should be reviewed before submitting the information to the council.

10.       After you are satisfied with the review, click the Submit button.

11.   Print the Unit Charter Renewal Report Package, which includes the charter renewal application and lists of new members, transfers, multiples, and no-fee adults. Acquire the appropriate signatures on the application, and then take the entire packet along with new applications and fee payments to the council office or to the district turn-in meeting.

Here’s how to wrap it up … you are NOT finished, unit needs to mail it in or bring it in to the office with a check.

One important thing to note:   Every unit in the council recharters in January for 12 Month fees:  

  • Registration:  $33.00  per person
  • Boys' Life:  $12.00  per person
  • Accident Insurance: $1.00 per person
  • New - Auto Accident Liability Insurance effective January 1, 2019: $6.00 per person

The total per person is $40.00

Q:  What is the NEW auto Liability fee?

A: This fee was adopted by the council executive board to recover the major increases to a local policy that the council was paying on the behalf of our Scouters and Parents. Due to a lawsuit from a death of one of our Scouts, the insurance has dramatically increased for a policy that will cover everyone related to transportation of Scouts and Scouters. This fee will be a full $6 at recharter and pro-rated after that point.

Note:  Effective 8/10/15 we stopped accepting credit cards for membership registration fees.  This includes fees for rechartering, Boys' Life and individual registration.  We ask that you submit one check or money order for all recharter fees and not multiple checks from individuals within your unit.  Thank you!
