The safety of our youth, volunteers, staff, and employees is an important part of the Scouting experience and continues to be our number one priority. Insurance costs continue to rise, just as you might have experienced this with your own health, auto and property insurance, Scouting has seen increased insurance costs to protecting our most valuable assets, such as our camp properties and facilities, vehicles and other assets. We also purchase general liability insurance to protect our registered Scouts, Leaders and Chartered Organizations who participate in and sponsor Scouting programs across Michigan.
For the past several years, insurance costs have been subsidized in the general operating budget at $1.00 per registered member and leader (approximately $81,000) versus annual insurance costs of over $1 million dollars. With the continued rising cost of insurance, the Michigan Crossroads Council can no longer subsidize these costs and remain fiscally strong and relevant.
