At the 2020 National Annual Meeting, a pricing change was announced for all National fees. This change will go into effect on August 1, 2020. The Greater Los Angeles Area Council Board of Directors has set the insurance fee to increase to $30 at the same time as the National fee increase to help offset the insurance cost to the Council.

While supplies last, new members will receive 5 free camp cards, a $25 value, to offset this national charge.
