Starting a Registration
WHAT'S A REGISTRATION CONTACT?
When you register for an event, you may notice that it first asks you for a Registration Contact. This is the person in charge of, or responsible for, that registration. Usually a parent or Unit Leader serves as the Registration Contact, even if they are not necessarily attending the event.
Adding attendee information comes next, and these are all the people attending the event. Registration Contact info is sometimes pre-filled for an adult slot since most of the time they are also attending the event.
Some Registration Contact information is applied to all the attendees, like unit type and number, even though you may not see it. For example, if you choose Troop 489 on the Registration Contact info page, that applies to everyone on the registration unless asked specifically on an attendee. This is so you don't have to choose the unit type and number for each individual Scout.
Parent Portal: Unit Leader Guide
Parent portal allows you, the registration contact, to provide the parents in your unit with access credentials so they can make payments and complete data entry for their particular scouts. Note that even if you provide parents the option to pay for their Scouts, the unit is still held responsible for the overall registration, including full payment and meeting early-bird deadlines.
Parent Portal: Parent's Guide
For some events, like summer camp, you may be able to book your registration and get the parent portal credentials without making any minimum payment (leaving it for parents to complete). At checkout, reduce the payment amount to $0, or choose the Mail in Check payment option to book your spots, then download the login credentials for your parents.
LOOKUP PREVIOUS REGISTRATION:
Made a registration, but you need to see what you submitted? Or maybe another Scout just found out they're able to attend the event? You can use your email and registration number to access, and make changes, to a previous registration!
