  • The figures in the 3rd column represent the actual cost, the other columns are examples of what you can charge your Cubs/Scouts, I.E., Divide column 3 by how many on the boat to find the individual cost. Some Groups charge a percentage for their Leaders toward food. This brings down the Cubs/Scouts cost.
