  1. 2019 Illinois and the ankle height and crew height are both 7.99 + tax
    A PAIR at the boy scout shop in Iowa and after a 45 minute drive one way! He is to be there a week and maybe then an additional week. We just did the pants and shorts and the other items. We are easily looking at 2-300$ And that was with one pair of the BSA official socks! I didn’t go, they did! 🙂 So, this is baloney! I can see scouts getting their feet all messed up because they can’t afford it! He is CIT and just outgrew things and so we had a nasty surprise days before he leaves and we find out his list of REQUIRED items! Uniform all week unless he is in CIT t-shirt or sleeping! Now I understand why the $$ cut for price of camp. It is to supply these kids with clothes and socks!

  2. $2 where? The cheapest I see is $8.

  3. Where can you get the ones with the red tops???
