A club consists of five or more members with an adult leader. Clubs can be all girls, all boys, or a mixed group. Regular meetings are held for business, planning, and project lessons. The club determines the frequency/location of meetings, the dues, and activities. A club functions under the leadership of screened adult volunteers.
What are the Dues/Costs
