The process of becoming a member of a section of the Scout Group generally starts with the young person coming along on the appropriate meeting and attending for about 4 to 6 weeks.
There are no membership fees charged for this initial 4 to 6 week try-out period. After this initial period a membership application will need to be completed and then sent to Scouts NSW. Payment of fees will then be required. If your child begins mid-year then fees will be determined on a term-by-term basis until the end of the year. Discounts are offered for multiple family members.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation fees are being reviewed. Please contact the Group Leader for current fee information.
Scouts NSW is an approved provider for the Active Kids Rebate. Parents and carers of school-aged children can claim two $100 Active Kids vouchers per child each year. Voucher 1 is valid from January through to December and Voucher 2 is valid from July to December. You can find out more about how to redeem the vouchers at the Scouts NSW website.
FINANCIAL HARDSHIP PROVISIONS
One of the aims of the Scout Movement and the 1st Murrumbateman Scout Group is to make the benefits of Scouting accessible to all. Scouts Australia NSW, the Riverina Region Team, and the Murrumbateman Scout Group will do everything possible to ensure that no child is prevented from participating due to an inability to afford the annual fees and the fees associated with other activities such as camps and excursions. There are a range of options available to make Scouting affordable for your family – please contact the Group Leader to discuss this if required. All requests for assistance, and any relief flowing from such requests are treated in absolute confidence.
Please email our treasurer – email@example.com – as well as the Group Leader when you have paid your fees.
