Fees are due at the start of each school term. Your prompt payment of your account will ensure we can access resources for the term’s activities. Options are available to pay a whole year up front.
If, however, there are any extenuating circumstances that prevent you from meeting your account payment on time, then please contact the Group Leader or the Treasurer. All matters are treated with the strictest confidence.
Scouting is a Not-For-Profit organization and the fees are used to cover items such as:
* New equipment and resources such as boats, tents, kayaks, ropes, cooking gear, games equipment etc.
* Badges, certificates etc.
* Maintenance of the Scout Hall and equipment as well as utility bills (water, electricity, insurance)
* Leader uniforms and training
All of the above costs the Group over $40,000 per year.

Naturally with Scouting being fundamentally an outdoors-based program there will, from time to time, be sleepovers, camps, hikes and other excursions, which your child will no doubt want to attend. The cost of these activities, which is kept to a minimum, covers items like food and site fees, is in addition to the termly fees.
