Welcome to 1st Salisbury Scout Group
Be prepared for Adventure

Fees and payment

For the first three weeks your child can simply come have a look and join in with the activities to see if he or she likes it. During that time they are automatically covered by the Scout Association for insurance purposes. Parents are welcome to watch as well as participate.

Please contact the Group Leader if more information is required.


Scouting is all about learning new skills in the outdoors. We encourage all our groups to participate in sleepovers, 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. The cost of these activities varies between Joey, Cub and Scouts sections and also with the travel distance.

The Scout Group

A Scout Group is entirely self-funded. The expenses of a Scout Group are various. A somewhat major cost is the purchasing of badges and certificates. (Badges are presented as soon as they are earned and there is no call for parents to purchase their child’s badges).

The Group must also meet the cost of maintaining the Scout Hall itself and we have the normal water, electricity and insurance bills to pay. Then there is also the initial and ongoing cost of training Leaders and the supply of their uniforms.

The Group’s running costs are mostly offset by the annual membership subscriptions and partly through a small number of fundraising activities throughout the year.


Most Scout Groups engage in fundraising for the Group. We encourage fundraising for major events (like attending a Jamboree) through the formation of parent committees for specific events.
