Internet Rechartering
Renew your Pack, Troop, Team, Crew or Ship Charter

Beginning October 1, 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.

Anyone who wants to learn more about how Internet Rechartering works can take the interactive Internet Rechartering Tutorial found on the BSA Internet Rechartering website. Access the tutorial by clicking on the "Tutorial" button below.

NOTE: It is unlawful to provide false or misleading information on youth or adult leader applications. All information must be complete and accurate. Each adult leader is subject to a detailed background check utilizing their social security number. An inaccurate social security number will cause rejection of the application and result in unnecessary costs to the Scout Council. Please make sure that all information provided is accurate before submitting charter.
