Membership Costs

Membership fees for Scouting cover insurance and much more.


As with most activities involving children, Scouting is unfortunately not free.

Your state membership fee goes back into running the Youth Program and providing training and resources for our Leaders and members. Our Leaders and helpers are all volunteers which goes to keeping costs down.  You can also use your Active Kids Voucher to participate in Scouts, and there are support programs in place to assist families facing financial need and to help young people participate.

The cost of participating in Scouts comprises of:

  • An annual State Membership fee that includes essential insurance for members, Leader training, a wide range of resources, and essential support services including finance, IT, property and facilities, child safety team, marketing and communication
  • A local Group fee covers the week-to-week expenses of running Scouts – resources, maintenance and utilities of the Scout Hall, and regular meeting activities
  • One-off costs – there are endless opportunities for additional participation in Scouts and there may be associated fees like camping charges, travel, event fees etc. These are always clearly communicated and many activities are low cost, note opportunities outside our weekly meetings during the school term are optional.
