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.
