Membership/Fundraising

This page will contain links to pay for membership with the 1st Pymble Scout group and also order forms for any fundraising activities which occur during the year.

Membership Costs

Maintaining the equipment and the hall costs money so we charge an annual fee from scouts and cubs; new equipment is generally provided for through our fundraising efforts. Additionally Scouts Australia (NSW) bill the group for the costs of insurances and a joining fee. The membership fee you pay the group includes this component.
Different activities during the year can come with some costs, generally to cover the cost of food. Typically these are ~$25 for a weekend hike. These are usually paid directly to the individual who purchased the food for the hike.

Fundraising Activities

In Spring the scout group sells and delivers fertiliser; scouts and cubs do leaflet drops in the local area with an order form. On a particular weekend parents and scouts deliver the fertiliser to customers (we only deliver to immediately surrounding suburbs).

We’ll usually do a Bunnings BBQ once a year.

On the second Saturday in December the scout group sells real Christmas trees at the Jack and Co service station on the corner of the Pacific Hwy and Bannockburn Rd.

The fundraising activities raise funds to purchase new equipment. We also apply to various levels of government and corporations for grants. Recently we’ve used these monies to buy canoes, a trailer, tents, camp cooking equipment etc.
