Fees

A WHOLE LOT OF LEARNING AND FUN FOR VERY LITTLE MONEY

New members – try it for free

Your child is most welcome to attend one or two evenings free of charge so they can decide whether Scouting is for them. Please provide a completed Y1 form (Youth Membership Application form) by the third evening to ensure that your child is covered by the Scout Association’s insurance policy. We will then provide a welcome guide and an invoice for fees.

Fees for new members are adjusted according to the time of joining. They include a Joining fee ($50) and pro-rata fees for the remaining portion of the year.

Annual Fees

The Annual Fees in 2016 for Cubs, Scouts and Venturers are $400 for the first child in a family and $300 for the second child and $250 for additional children in the same family.

A large proportion of this goes 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/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.
