Sea Scouts









A Scout Group is entirely self-funded. The expenses of a Scout Group are met by the Parent Assistant Group. They take responsibility for the cost of running the Den and surrounds, raise funds, organise social events, and attend scout activities including camps and excursions. Meetings are held regularly at the Den on either the Cub or Scout meeting night for convenience.

Expenses are various. purchasing of badges, certificates etc., (badges are purchased by the Group and presented as they are earned ).

The Committee must also meet the cost of maintaining camping and water equipment in first class, safe condition as well as paying for and maintaining the Scout Hall itself. There is the cost of providing new equipment and resources such as tents, ropes, cooking gear, games equipment etc.

Naturally we have electricity, insurance and the like to pay and there are Leader training costs to be met by the Group to ensure that Leaders are fully trained to deliver the best programs they can to your child.

A Membership Fee is payable to Scouts Australia, QLD Branch, each year. This covers administration, some costs, and insurance for members.

Den Fees are paid per term and are on a sliding scale for 2 or more children from the one family. Den fees are payable to Belgian Gardens Scout Group. This covers the cost of rates, electricity, Den insurance, equipment maintenance, etc.

From the night he or she is invested, your child will be expected to wear the Scout uniform of a Scout section shirt, scarf and woggle. Closed in shoes must be worn at all times. Shorts or pants are blue, preferably with belt keepers so the scout can wear a custom-made belt. Shorts/trousers can be purchased at any clothing store. Uniforms and award books are available from the Kennedy Region Outdoor Centre, 387 Charles St, Kirwan, phone 47734274. We may have second hand uniforms available, so please ask a Committee member regarding this.
