For more than 110 years, Scouts has supported young people around the world and across NSW to make friends, experience adventures and learn valuable skills that aren't readily available elsewhere.
We help create lasting memories and build self-confidence and, at the same time, help young people become resilient, innovative, adaptable and purposeful. In fact, a study conducted by Resilient Youth Australia in partnership with the University of South Australia found that young people participating in Scouts have an overall better life satisfaction than their peers, and the longer they remain with Scouts, the more resilient they become!
We believe that Scouting remains one of the most valuable investments we can make in young people today so they can become the leaders we will turn to tomorrow.
There are many behind-the-scenes operations in place to ensure we can safely and successfully deliver the Scouting program, and that our members can enjoy Scouting now and into the future. The Scouts NSW State Membership Fee is an annual fee that helps to make this happen by covering the costs of essential services and behind-the-scenes operations at a Region and State level.
In prior years, families would have received their bill for the State Membership Fee as a part of a single invoice from their Scout Group. This invoice would have included both the cost of the State Membership Fee and the cost of local Group fees, charged and managed by the Scout Group to deliver Scouting locally.
From 2021 on-wards, families will receive two separate invoices - one for their State Membership Fee (billed directly from Scouts NSW), and another to cover local fees charged by their Scout Group.
This web page aims to provide parents and guardians of youth members with the useful information about this change in the billing process.
