Membership fees for all sections are explained below
Updated September 2019
This year there is a small change to the membership fees across some of the sections.
P1 - £50
P2 - £60* (P2 children transfer to Beaver insurance during the course of the year)
Beavers - £60
Cubs - £70
Scouts - £80
Explorers - £85
*P2 children transfer to Beaver insurance during the course of the year.
All fees above include the Membership / Capitation fee paid to HQ.
The membership fee is per child per year and covers cost towards badges, materials and activities (for example crafts) with the section your son / daughter is in.
Capitation fees for the year are set by Scout HQ and may include a County and District Levy per member under 18 years old, this is insurance which covers your child when doing all types of scouting activities, from camping to day trips. This is a compulsory fee and must be paid, unfortunately your son / daughter will not be allowed on trips, camps or at the meeting place if this is not paid by the date specified by the leader of each section.
In all sections activities and events are run which result in additional costs, we try our best to keep these costs to a minuium and throughout the year try to subsidise at least one camp (Cubs / Scouts).
Camps and activities can range from £5 - £35* depending on length of trips and destintations.
The Scout section would have certain camps or activities which would exceed these costs but these would be for camps or acitivities further away.
For further information or you are unsure of any aspect of this please do not hesitiate to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
*some camps or trips may well exceed this figure, most notably NIJAM 2021 and long trips / events.
Worried about cost?
We don’t want young people to miss out through financial hardship. If concerns about finances may prevent your child taking part in Scouting or some activities, speak to your section leader, as some assistance may be available in confidence.
