Membership Fees & Discounts


There is a fee per school term and this is payable at the beginning of the term. The current full fee per term is $110, but see discounts below for ways to reduce that fee. For members joining later in a term, the fee is payable upon registration and is calculated based on when you join. The minimum fee for part of a term is $50 to cover the affiliation and insurance fees. A discount is applied where more than one children in family are members.  



You have plenty of opportunities to lower the cost of scouting being an active parent and helping the group and we hope you do.

Besides we believe that no child should be denied the opportunity to become a member due to financial constraints. Please discuss this privately with the Group Leader.
