Term subs: Scouts $10 Cubs $20

Uniform extra - see scoutshop website for prices https://scoutshop.com.au/

Invoicing is early March - due before April, and September - due before October





NSW Government  "Active kids rebate"

Apply online to get voucher, and then online allocate it to Scouts NSW https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher

The government fine print links it to scout HQ quarterly invoicing, not 1st Bayview half yearly invoicing. Therefore three months AFTER you allocate your rebate to scouts NSW the government allocates $41 to scouts NSW, then another $41 three months later, then finally $18 three months later. If a scout resigns during this12 month cycle there are no more Scouts NSW membership quarterly invoices so the Government does NOT give the remainder of the $100 to Scouts NSW or us.

For vouchers allocated to scouts NSW before June 2018 we apply the credit to teh 1st Bayview September half year invoice.
For vouchers allocated to scouts NSW between 1/7/18 and 31/12/18 we will apply the $100 credit to the March 2019 invoice (provided the government continues the scheme into next year and gives us the credits for 2019 membership fees) .

If your child is also active in other organisations where their HQ member fees exceed $100 in a shorter period, then we encourage you to allocate your voucher there rather than with us, You may then get the $100 credit sooner. The organisation you apply it to gets no gain from the money, the $100 is all applied to you so there is no reason to allocate it to scouts thinking you are helping us.



New Scout joining process and pro-rata fees and existing scouts transferring to Bayview from another group:


Our cub/scout or venturer section leader will guide you through your child joining, but here is the process in summary:

1. Verify if the cub, scout, or venturer section your child needs to join has a waiting list.

2 Once our cub/scout or venturer section leader advises you can commence fill in the on line Y1 scout membership application. www.nsw.scouts.com.au/newyouthmember (In the Scout Group drop down select “1st Bayview Scout Group”). Save the PDF and then email it to the section leader before your child's first night .

Care Monkey is used to send permission notes to parents so you will need an account and you can also install the CareMonkey app on your phone.

Note if your child already has a CareMonkey profile from school or elsewhere then in your on line Y1 Scout application you use the same child's name and primary carer email address as you have in CareMonkey.

3. If your child does not have a CareMonkey profile, go on line and setup a CareMonkey medical profile for your child. https://www.caremonkey.com/sign-up/  Click on "free account" Think carefully about who's email address to use as the primary carer, and use the same one as the first parent in the Y1 application. Let your leader know once done.


4 Your child then tries out scouts for 4-6 weeks no charge and no obligation.

5. When they decide to continue, pay term subs and membership fees. New members
only pay pro-rata until our next half yearly billing cycle. (see tables below). If paying initial fees by direct deposit include ref "NEWMEM"

Buy uniform shirt and pay term subs. (See above)


7. Your child will be fully activated and able to attend camps and other events once the child's photo is in CareMonkey.

An investiture ceremony is held during a weekly scout/cub/venturer night. Parents are encouraged to attend.
