"Participation in Scouting leads to a lifelong association with the outdoors and an active lifestyle."

Scouts NSW is an approved provider of the Active Kids rebate.
Active Kids is a NSW Government program which helps families across the State meet the cost of getting their children into sport and active fitness and recreation activities, such as Scouts!
Parents and carers of school-aged children can receive two $100 vouchers to go towards membership fees and participation/program fees for the calendar year. Every child (4.5 – 18 years old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 is eligible for an Active Kids voucher. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW.
Two vouchers are now available annually, ensuring families who want their children to enjoy the Scout program can send their children to Scouts. The first voucher received by Scouts NSW will go towards the membership fee and the second voucher will go towards participation/program activities. These funds will be directed to the Group for use locally and will contribute to term fees, activities, events or camps.
Scouts NSW has worked closely with the NSW Office of Sport to ensure the program is implemented effectively and is integrated as seamlessly as possible so that Scouting families can redeem their vouchers easily.
