Financial Assistance

Every youth should have the opportunity to join Scouting. The program is naturally built with the ability to fundraise and support the many adventures Scouting can offer. If a Scout is not able to sustain his/her registration then the Nevada Area Council does have the ability to help with some of the financial costs. Money should not be an issue keeping a Scout from participating. Please make sure to complete the financial assistance form and email it to
