What is the difference between State Membership fee and group fees?

The State Membership Fee is an annual fee set by Scouts NSW and covers the costs of essential services and behind-the-scenes operations at a Region and State level to ensure members can enjoy Scouting now and into the future. This includes members’ public liability and personal accident insurance. The Fee is payable by members of Scouts NSW each year. In 2023, the cost of the State Membership Fee is $270.

Groups may charge additional fees (usually by term) to cover the program and local activities.
