Scouts NSW is an eligible provider of the Active Kids rebate. From 31 January 2018, parents and carers of school-aged children in Scouts can receive a $100 voucher to go towards covering membership fees for the calendar year. More information can be found at the Scouts NSW page here.
A large proportion of fees go to the Scout Association to cover organisation costs and member insurance. The remainder is used by the Group to fund hall insurance and maintenance, power and water bills, purchase of equipment for weekly activities and camps, badges etc.
Invoices are sent out to all families in March for payment of annual fees – charged in advance from April to March the following year. Non-payment of fees may result in suspension from activities as your child is not covered under Scout Association’s insurance policies.
If you are having difficulties paying fees on time, please contact the Group Leader to discuss your situation and potential options. As a community group we do not want any child to miss out scouting for financial reasons.
