Event and Activity Fees
Scouting is an outdoors based program. Sleep overs, holidays, camps and hikes range from day activities up to three days duration. The cost of these activities is an extra expense, however you can be sure that we carefully aim to keep the price of such activities to a minimum. Our aim is that each section has at least one overnight activity each term. Cost of these activities varies between Joey, Cub and Scouts sections and also with the travel distance. Youth members are encouraged to also purchase a Group polo top to wear for vigorous activities, camps, etc to save the wear on the formal uniform.
Event or activities are organised by :
- Glen Osmond Scout Group
The Group will set the fee at the minimum possible allowing for external costs, booking fees, use of a specialist instructor (like gliding) or cost of special travel. The additional activity costs largely depend on the Section organising the activity. Roughly, the cost goes up with the age of the member.
- Other Event Organisers
The fee charged is out of the Group's control, like attendance at a State or National Scouting Event. These can be expensive depending on the duration of the event and the distance of travel to the event. Parents of attendees should organise Group-supported fund-raising to defray the costs of these unique Scouting experiences for their children.
