If you are joining Scouts for the first there is a one-time joining fee of $20 plus an annual or quarterly membership fee, which includes personal accident and public liability insurance cover. Each Scout Group is responsible for its own Scouting financial program so it’s best to check with you local group for their membership and subscription costs.
A shirt and belt is all that makes up the basic Scout uniform. These items can be purchased from Snowgum stores or through second hand clothing pools run by many local Scout Groups. Scarves and badges are provided at no cost by the local Scout Group.
Your local Scout Group will either own or have access to a large range of camping and adventure equipment such as tents, ropes, canoes, and cooking gear. The cost of this equipment is met through local fundraising and your membership subscription.
