What will I have to pay for?

Crew candidates are responsible for paying the one-time $25 SCA application fee, the $500 program fee, and the cost of travel between their home and the crew location.  

You may also have some costs associated with gear. Crew members are responsible for providing their own personal gear, such as sleeping bags, backpacks, and water bottles. Visit the crew Gear Page for a detailed gear list. Selected members will also have the option to rent or purchase gear through SCA.

Financial aid is available to all crew candidates on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial aid application details will be provided to members after they accept their offer.
