Fees

How much does it cost?

Being run by volunteers, Scouting is incredible value for money and not expensive either.  Parents pay a subscription 3 times a year in line with the School Spring, Summer and Autumn terms.  This covers the cost of regular meetings.  On top of this there are one-off fees payable for specific events such as camps.

Subscriptions

Beaver section: £30 per term (£90 per annum)
Cub section: £35 per term (£105 per annum)
Scout section: £40 per term (£120 per annum)

Example event costs

Beaver Panto £8
Beaver sleepover (indoor) £20
Cub weekend away (indoor) £80
Scout weekend camp (outdoor) £40
Scout 7-night Summer Camp (outdoor) £250

Fundraising

Although our fees are low many of our costs are not!  The Group needs to maintain its meeting place and equipment including the Scout minibus, trailer, tents, &c.  We also pay fees to the UK Scout Association of which we form part.  This means that we frequently conduct fundraising events such as bag-packing at supermarkets and socials.

We also use fundraising to maintain a trust fund from which we can subsidise the subscriptions and event fees of any young people who cannot afford the full cost of Scout membership.
