Internet Rechartering

Attention Scout Leaders:
Due to the increased burden on  Orange County Council for credit card service fees associated with Deposits/Payments made on Unit Accounts and for Unit Recharters, we will no longer be able to accept credit cards or debit cards for these types of transactions. We will however continue to accept credit and debit card payments for most other transactions as we have in the past.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.

The unit charter renewal process is essential to the continued growth of the Boy Scouts of America. Internet Rechartering is an Internet-based application that is indirectly connected to the Council’s ScoutNet membership data and provides the ability for unit leaders to complete the paperwork portion of rechartering from their home (office, etc) over the Internet. Units will love this proven method; it’s easy, convenient, and accurate because you enter the information yourself!

Here’s how it works:

Each unit will receive a booklet with the Access Code from their Unit Commissioner at the District Roundtable for internet rechartering. The unit selects an adult to complete the online process. This renewal processor uses the access code to log onto the internet rechartering website ( First time user each year), selecting to start the process with current ScoutNET data (load roster from Council) or data from unit-management software (Troopmaster).  At any time, the renewal processor can suspend the electronic rechartering process and return later to the last completed screen.

The system lets you enter new members, renew current members, and update information for any registrant.  When completed acquire the Charter Org Representative  e-signature via online tool (see booklet for process).  Submit the updated unit renewal roster electronically to ScoutNET.  (no draft copies ) You must print the Final EZ Summary Charter Renewal Report. Attach any new applications & JTE Form deliver to your District turn in Night, plus a check for all fees or for the 1st time the 2018 fees can be paid online with a Credit Card, included is a 3% convenience fee.

All BSA policies are enforced throughout the system, so what you enter is sure to meet all requirements. Remember Youth Protection training is required before a leader can register, go to to take the on line course.
