So where do the monthly subs go?
By Ben Pedley

Each year, every Member of a Group is required to pay a Membership Subscription. These fees ensure that financially we are able to run safe, effective and efficient Squirrell, Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer Programmes for your child(ren). Alongside this, we sometimes have extra charges for special activities, camps and events.

Included in the subscription are the following items:

  • Cost of Headquarters services to the Movement and the costs of organising and administering the Association, and to meet the Association’s obligations to World Scouting.


  • Cost of the local Scout District & Region.


  • Cost of the Group to cover administration, building insurance, personal accident and medical expenses insurance, utility costs, maintaining our scout hall, maintaining, repairing and replacing our tents and equipment and to subsidise certain group events.


  • Cost of the section weekly activities including materials, books, badges and prizes.


(This is list is not exhaustive and just covers the key items)
