We strongly recommend you take the tutorial, especially if it is your first time. Get your unit Access Code from your Recharter Packet or the Council Scout Office to access Internet Rechartering. (Note: The Internet recharter code is different from the internet advancement code)
Council has a link online for Internet Re-Chartering. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) requires each Scouting unit – whether Pack, Troop, Team, Crew, Ship, or Post – to renew its Charter annually. This assures that the Chartered Organization is using Scouting’s programs and assures that the unit roster is up to date at least once a year. We refer to this annual renewal as “RECHARTERING”.

1) A printed copy of your units Internet Re-charter needs to be turned into the council. The copy you print out is required to have three signatures on the recharter printout:
- Executive officer (Institutional Head)

- Council representative (commissioner or district executive) – can be obtained at turn-in.
2) A Council staff member will help you calculate fees for Registration & Boys Life Fees, Charter Fee and for accident Insurance for each youth and adult (as of yet this line is not added to the Internet Recharter). Do not make a check out for the amount shown in the internet process – we must deduct all new youth that joined in the school night round-up. We will help you.

The access code changes every year – do not use last year’s code because it will attempt (and fail) to access last year’s information. YOU ARE A “FIRST TIME USER” WHEN YOU BEGIN YOUR FIRST SESSION EVERY YEAR FOR EACH UNIT THAT YOU WORK ON! If you attempt to use last year’s access code and its password, you will receive an error message telling you that the data is no longer available.
