Joining Scouts

We look forward to welcoming you along to try out Scouts!

Before you come along, make sure you've been in touch - sometimes our sections are out and about doing activities so may not be at the hall.

 

Come and Try

For the first three weeks your child can come have a look and join in with the activities to see if they like it.

On your first first we will give you a membership application form to complete (so we have your contact details). When you decide to join this form is submitted to Scout HQ and we will send you an invoice for fees.

When you have returned the completed registration form and paid the membership fee, we then proceed with an investiture ceremony to welcome your child to Scouting.

 

Membership Fees

There is a fee per calendar year and this is payable at the beginning of the year. For members joining later in the calendar year, the fee is payable upon registration and is calculated based on when you join. A discount is applied where more than one child from a family is a member.

 

We believe that no child should be denied the opportunity to become a member due to financial constraints. Please contact the Group Leader if more information is required.


 

Uniform

 

The uniform consists of a shirt (polo style), belt, scarf & woggle, and trousers.

The shirt, belt, scarf & woggle are available from the ‘Scout Outdoor Centre’, 192 Rundle Street, Adelaide and cost approximately $70.

The trousers are a stone / bone colour and are also available from the Scout Outdoor Centre  -(these pants convert into shorts with a zipper in each leg).

Shoes for most activities can be runners. Leather / dress shoes (eg school shoes) are worn for formal occasions.  A blue broad brimmed hat should be worn during outdoor activities.


Activities 

Scouting is an outdoors based program. Sleep overs, 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. Cost of these activities varies between Joey, Cub and Scouts sections and also with the travel distance. We suggest you allow approx. $80 per term for activities.

 

 

The Scout Group

Our Scout Group is entirely self-funded and relies on membership fees to fund operations of the Group - hall maintenance, electricity, insurance, water, as well as leader training, program purchase and more.

Another major cost is the “Affiliation Fee”. This is a fee the Group pays to our Scouting State Headquarters for each registered member of the group. This is largely to cover insurance for the Member during Scouting activities. 

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

 

Fundraising

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

For specific information about fees please download the Group fee information sheet or ask your Leader
