Subscriptions and Costs

We are a registered charity run entirely by volunteers. We charge a termly subscription of £35 three times a year, which is used to pay towards materials and activities, building maintenance & our bills plus the capitation fee to the national Scout Association. You can pay in a single instalment if you prefer. We have to fund raise on top of this to meet our financial obligations.

Camps (and some other activities) incur extra costs, but these are always kept to a minimum. Weekend camps cost from £25 to £75 (depending on whether we are buying in instructors for adventurous activities, and whether we can find a field to camp in for free). Summer camp (Scouts) costs from £180 – £300 depending on the destination and itinerary and payments are staged through the year.

If you have genuine difficulty paying for activities please let us know, we’ll help if we can.
