WHAT DOES IT COST ?

The basic fee per youth member for the full financial year 2016-2017 is $464.

Fees can be paid yearly or half yearly. The fees are adjusted for members joining throughout the year.

The fees are made up of two separate payments:

1. Registration: This fee goes to Scouts Australia - Vic branch and is used for all insurances and registration.

2. Group: This fee stays with 2nd Mornington Sea Scouts and helps toward running the weekly program, providing scarves, badges and books, maintenance of the property, maintenance of boats, all other insurances, leader training and administering the group.

Second and subsequent children of the same parents are eligible for a 15% reduction in their group fee. Full Registration fees for all children still have to be paid.

Leader’s children have heavily discounted group fees. Full Registration fees still have to be paid.

SCOUTING NEEDS PARENTAL COMMITMENT

Scouting is not a child-minding organisation.  The Group would collapse if all every parent did was drop-off and pick-up their child. Assistance most often takes the form of providing transport to and from activities and camps. It may also involve sharing a skill or hobby with the children. You will be expected to help in various fun fund-raising activities throughout the year. You might also consider taking a position on the Group Committee, which ensures that the Group is adequately resourced to enable the leaders to deliver the programs.


WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US

The leaders at all levels are trained to provide an enjoyable and challenging program, which has been designed with an emphasis on outdoor activities and hands-on learning, to suit the needs and capabilities of children within a specific age range.

The programs are developed and issued at the beginning of each term.  Notices of changes to the program or activities outside normal meetings are also provided in advance. In the course of the program your child will be provided with appropriate equipment. They will be taught how to use it safely and encouraged to care for it and to use it responsibly.

During the evening sessions and also during excursions, outside activities and camps, we have a Duty of Care to ensure your child’s safety. This is taken very seriously and is re-enforced by the safety standards of Scouts Australia, through the District Commissioner and Group Leader.

If you have any concerns, you’re encouraged to speak directly to the section leader and, if appropriate, it will be handled by the Group Leader.

WHAT NEXT?

Because we are a very popular Scout Group, there are often waiting lists for each of our sections.

The first step is to contact the Group Leader, Helen Luloffs via email on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  She will advise on whether your child can immediately enter a section on a try-out basis or whether they will need to be added to a waiting list.

Your child can ‘road test’ 2nd Mornington Sea Scouts for three nights without obligation. You will be asked to sign two forms on the first night, which provides immediate insurance cover through Scouts Australia.

After the try-out period, it is then a matter of phoning the Group Leader to arrange an interview and payment of fees. Then, within a matter of weeks, your child will be formally invested into the Group.

 

You will need to purchase a uniform at The Scout Shop.

 

Uniform shirts range from about $30 for joeys and from about $45 for Cubs and Scouts and from about $40 for Venturers.
