Active kids Voucher process:


Apply for vouchers https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher


Allocate them to an organisation your kid pays member fees to. (They only work for member fees invoiced after the date you apply). It is best to apply Active kids vouchers to organisations that have a single yearly membership fee (soccer, baseball, etc). However it is still possible to allocate them to your scout member fees at https://www.nsw.scouts.com.au/active-kids-voucher-redemption-form/


The downside of applying vouchers to scouts, or to other organisations with ongoing quarterly HQ and local club fees, is that Government only issues a small portion of the total against each quarter's fees. It may take up to a year to all come through to us. Also if you leave scouting later in the year, then the government does not issue the remainder at all. This is why we cannot discount the total off any one quarterly fee in advance, and hope that the government gives it to us later. We can only reimburse to you what the government actually issue to Scouts NSW for you. Therefore we get you to give us your bank account details and then after each quarter we direct deposit whatever the government has given us for you, for that quarter.

New Scout joining process  and existing scouts transferring to Bayview from another group:


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

1. Verify if the joey/cub/scout/venturersection your child wants to join has a waiting list. (Ask leaders)

2. Once the leader advises you can come along to try out, 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”). .

3. CareMonkey is used to send permission notes to parents so you will need a CareMonkey account with a profile for each child. You can then install the CareMonkey app on your phone.

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

If your child does not have a CareMonkey profile, go on line and setup a CareMonkey 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 email as the first parent in the Y1 application. Include the portrait photo.


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

5. When your child decide to continue,
pay term subs and membership fees by direct deposit. Send copy to your section leader cc treasurer@bayvieewseascouts.com.au

Pay term subs and buy uniform shirt, (and hat, carry bag if required). (See section leader for details)


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

An investiture ceremony is held during a weekly Joey/Cub/Scout/Venturer night. Parents are encouraged to attend.
