The fees are as follows: Joeys, Cubs, Scouts: $60 per term which includes the annual Scouts Australia member registration fee. Venturers pay $53 the member registration fee only.
Fees pay for electricity, rates, hall maintenance, Leader training, badges, meeting expenses and equipment. Discounts apply for taking on a Leader or Assistant Leader role within the group. Other costs apply for camps and activities where your child participates.
Discount of $10/term applies to the 3rd (and subsequent) fee paying child/ren from each family (when the 3 or more children are attending concurrently).
Upon joining two terms fees are required. These cover our upfront costs and a little for activities. From then on twice yearly invoices are raised by the group Treasurer.
A Fundraising Levy of $30.00 per term per family applies.
Proceeds from the levy will be used to maintain and improve the group hall and equipment.
In line with the Scouting spirit of involvement, activity and community, we would much rather see you participating in Fundraising activities, than paying a levy! For example, assisting one morning at the Lions shed when the group is rostered on may account for two terms levies being waived.
Group Committee maintain a list of known fundraising activities and of the people who make themselves available.
We ask that all families put their name on the hall cleaning roster once per year to assist your children and the Leaders in holding activities in a relatively clean environment. This cleaning activity is not in any way related to the fundraising levy as that relates to income generated through fundraising activities.
