What is the State Membership Fee? How does it differ to the fee I pay to my child’s local Scout Group?

Your child’s State Membership Fee covers the cost of delivering Scouting to many thousands of young people across NSW.

The fee covers the cost of essential services and operations such as risk management and safety, seeking and facilitating grants to help us develop and address organisational opportunities, accounting and IT services, training, property services and Region support. It also covers the cost of public liability and personal accident insurance for your child or young adult, their Leaders and other youth and adult members participating in approved Scouting activities.
