The scout group requires members to sign up to Care Monkey so that this can be linked with the scout membership. Many sporting groups and schools are also using Care Monkey for this purpose and the same profile may be used for each.

Costs

Trial: There is no cost or obligation for one trial meeting. A completed F6 form is required.

For fee assistance please check eligibility for Fair Play Voucher

Registration

Member registration costs can be found on the Youth Registration A5 Form. Registration cost is split over two payments and will vary according to the time of year as renewals are always due in term one (1/April) and term three (1/Oct). As an indication of the registration fee, for April/2021, the fee is $163.00, changing (pro-rata) to $98 at the end of the registration period. This fee is paid to Qld Branch and includes the member's insurance for that year.

Uniform

The uniform fee is separate from the registration fee and is normally around $85 including scout shirt, scarf, woggle & badges. Please refer to your section leader for the exact cost and supply of the uniform. The uniform fee is paid to the group who will invoice you for the correct cost. Please advise shirt size to the section leader who will supply the uniform.

Term fees

Ongoing costs include bi-annual registration renewal, paid in term one and term three, and term fees throughout the year. As of 2021 the renewal fee is $78 (term one) and $78 (term three). This is paid, by the group, directly to Scouts Queensland Branch and includes member insurance. There are four terms and an invoice of $100 for each term will be issued to parents to cover this renewal and term fees. These term fees are paid to the Group/Section that the member attends to cover section meeting running costs. Events such as camps or off-site visits may incur an attendance fee for the event which will be advised with notice of the event.

Note that members will stay registered, and insured, as long as registration renewals are paid each year. If the registration renewals are not paid then the member may be de-registered and an intial registration fee may be required to re-join. Term fees that do not include a registration fee (two & four), however, may be waived if a member advises the section/group that the member is unable to attend for the entire term. Note that term one and three fees must be paid on time to stay registered regardless of attendence.

Fundraising

The Burleigh Group is active in fundraising efforts. For certain fundraising effort benefit can flow directly to those scouting families that make significant contributions to the fundraising effort. The benefit offered is in the form of assistance payments for youth members attending major scouting events. Such assitance must be managed according to rules know and accepted by all members. A copy of a current draft of the rules is here. These rules are subject to finalization by the group committe and acceptance according to the rules of the QBSI.
