Parent Info Pack

Join Burleigh Heads Scout Group

Send email (see Contacts) and arrange for your youth member to attend a trial section night (see Section Details).

Care Monkey

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 (see form links below).

Member registration costs can be found on the Youth Registration A5 Form (see links below). Initial registration cost will vary according to the time of year as renewals are always due in term one. As an indication of the initial registration fee, for 2019 the full registration fee is $213.00 dropping (pro-rata) to $77 at the end of the registration period (April-March). This fee is paid to Qld Branch and includes the member's insurance for that year.

Ongoing costs include annual registration renewal (always paid in term one) and term fees throughout the year. As of 2019 the renewal fee is $145. There are four terms but registration or renewal includes one term fee each year. Term fees may vary and are advised on application but are typically from $50 to $100 per term. These term fees are paid to the Group/Section that the member attends to cover section meeting 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 as long as registration renewals are paid each year. If the registration renewal is not paid then the member will be de-registered and an intial registration fee may be required to re-join. Term fees, within the registration period, however may be waived if a member advises the section/group that the member is unable to attend for the entire term.

Fundraising

The Burleigh Group is active in funcraising efforts. For certain fundraising effort benefit can flow directly to those scouting famimilies 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.
