Join Us

If your interested in Scouting, we’d love to hear from you – there is something here for everyone, from the youngest Joeys right through to our young adult Rovers.  As a family-based group we also welcome parent helpers, and aspiring future leaders.  Joining involves becoming a member of Scouts Australia as well as contributing to our local Group.
Membership costs involve three basic fees:

  • Scout Association Membership and Registration Fees – this membership fee is paid to the Scout Association of Australia, Queensland Branch.
  • Group Fees – this fee goes to providing our Group with resources for weekly activities.

Our New Member Information Pack provides a brief overview of what the Victor Scout Group is about.

Scout Association Membership Fee

At the end of each Scout Year (31st March), the Victor Scout Group is required to pay an annual membership fee for each member to the Scout Association of Australia, Queensland Branch.

Scout Association fees cover the administration and support costs for Scouts Queensland.

All youth members will need to pay the following fees.

Membership and registration fees

APR 2019 MAY 2019 JUN 2019 JUL 2019 AUG 2019 SEP 2019
$213 $202 $193 $182 $171 $161
OCT 2019 NOV 2019 DEC 2019 JAN 2020 FEB 2020 MAR 2020
$150 $142 $132 $77 $77 $77

Group fees

To enable us to provide weekly meetings for each of the Sections, a number of resources are needed, such as craft material, first aid equipment, maps, compasses, etc. These resources enable us to deliver our Scout Program to all of our members, and are paid for out of our Section Subscriptions.

For the 2019/2020 year, the section fees are $150 per year.

Fundraising

In order to provide training and insurance cover for the Group (accident and income protection for Leaders and members of the Committee) and to equip the Sections with camping equipment etc., funds need to be raised.

All families are expected to participate in the fundraising activities undertaken by the Group.  By raising funds in this manner, it will prevent the need for additional levies to be charged or increases in Section Subscriptions.

Victor Scout Group fundraising activities include:

  • Sausage sizzles at Bunnings Mt Gravatt store.
  • Sausage sizzles at ANZAC Day service in WJ Scott Park – supported by the Holland Park Sub-Branch of the Queensland RSL.
  • Annual Christmas raffle.

Payment

Members can pay for the above charges by cash or cheque, however, our preferred method of payment is by direct credit to the Victor Scout Group bank account.
