What will I have to pay for?

All crew candidates are responsible for paying the one-time $25 SCA application fee and for covering 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.

Leadership Crews are the only crews that are tuition-based. Members pay tuition to participate in Leadership crews. The Leadership Crew program page has current tuition rates.   

Financial aid is available to all crew candidates on a first-come, first-served basis. Financial aid application details will be provided to selected members. 

Visit the National, Regional and Leadership crew program pages for more details about program costs.
