How much does Scouting cost?

Scouting is affordable way of providing hundreds of adventurous activities for your child.Boy with rucksack.jpg

In a 2010 survey, 75% of parents said Scouting provided the best value for money compared to other extra-curricular activities like sports and martial arts groups, youth clubs and drama or music classes.

Individual Groups charge different amounts for providing Scouting to your child. This is due to each Group having different operating costs, which can include; buidling hire, upkeep of Scout owned buildings and energy costs.

Scouting usually costs between £50 and £100 a year and maybe collected, weekly, monthly, each term or annually depending on local arrangements.

All our Leaders are volunteers and do not get paid to run any meetings, activities or events that they organise for the young people.

Usually camps, trips and activities are charged separately.
