The fees for the Scouting year are shown below.  These fees are made up of a proportion that is a levy charged by SCOUTS New Zealand, along with the remaining fee going towards covering the running costs for the Group. Waiheke Sea Scouts must pay around $50 per term to SCOUTS NZ for each member.  Our group receives the remainder and it’s never enough to cover the costs in terms of maintaining our property and equipment – therefore, any additional donation is also welcome, should you wish to do so.

We do seek grants and funding to cover repairs and maintenance costs and new purchases where these are required.  We would be delighted if you can spare an hour or two each year to help fill in application forms and follow up fundraising opportunities.

In addition to the fees, members are also expected to pay for e.g. badges and special events during the year, as those optional are incurred.

Invoices for fees are sent out quarterly and annually after you have completed your registration.

Notes On Fees:

  • Fees are generally payable in four instalments (e.g. on or before the beginning of each term, or pro-rata during the term).  You may also pay the entire year.
  • Fees are non-refundable, even if you cancel or decide to leave part way through the term (except in exceptional circumstances).
  • Please contact the Group Leader, Group Committee Chairperson or Treasurer if you have financial difficulties in paying your child’s fees.

 

Buying Uniforms

You can purchase the Sea Scouts uniform from the Scouts NZ online store

Your child may achieve and be awarded other badges and may attend special events during the year. These can be purchased during the year as they are incurred.
