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

Scouts NSW is an eligible 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 a $100 voucher to go towards covering membership 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.

One voucher will be available annually over the next four years, ensuring families who want their children to enjoy the Scout program can send their children to Scouts.

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.

The $100 Active Kids voucher goes towards covering Scouts NSW membership fees. It does not cover individual items such as uniforms, activity costs and travel costs, or your Group fees.
