Subscriptions (“Subs”)

Our annual membership fees are £60 per young person per term. This covers the capitation fee for Scout headquarters as well as the general costs of running the Sections. These include heating, lighting, badges, administration and materials for meetings. Subs are payable at the start of each term in September, January and April each year. We aim to ensure that cost is not a barrier to participating in Scouting and so you have difficulties with paying please contact the Group Scout Leader.

Capitation Fees

Capitation fees go towards the day to day running of headquarters, plus personal insurance for each member with a small amount to cover the costs of administration for the County and District. The fees are paid annually by the group on 1st January each year, and is included in the above annual Subscriptions.
