The basic fees paid to the YMCA are the same for both the Princess and the Guides programs and are collected by the YMCA and go to the YMCA.
In addition to the fees we pay to the YMCA we also ask each member to contribute $40 a year. We as a Nation, both Guides and Princess, collect this money and this is what we use to fund our events and pay our expenses. Some of what we use this money for are patches, trophies, and food for events and campouts alike.
Outside of the fees and the contribution the only cost is for each event and campouts which really depend on which ones you attend. The events we like to make sure are around $5 or $10. per dad The campouts are a significant cost at $115 per father and son and $50 for additional sons.
