    Axe Explorer Units generally charge between 45 and 50 quid per term (3 x terms a year), that includes AMS

    Ours have recently gone up due to escalating overheads...

    £15/term and £2/night for scouts, £1.50 cubs, £1 for beavers.

    Works out at around £100/year. We've tried to limit the increase as much as we can by doing more fund raising.

    All camps and other expensive activities are charged as they happen.

    To give a quick run down of how we work it out.

    £15/term + £1.25/night covers AMS and 50% of our rent, we then fundraise the other 50%. The rest goes on night activities, equipment and subsidising other activities.

    Weekly Subs

    Beavers currently pay £2.50 per week whilst Cubs and Scouts pay £3.00 per week. If for any reason any Young Member does not attend on any week they will pay £1.50 this is to cover AMS.
    The Treasurer will take £1.50 per person per week from each sections Subs and place in to a bank account to pay for AMS.
    We do not charge for section activities but will charge for outings and camps.

    Starting to feel guilty now.

    Group charge is £70 a year

    We as a Scout section charge around £30 a term for subs + camps and other activities.

    So total around £160

    We have never really had a fundraising committee until now so have had to buy all our own stuff but we do subsidise camps when we can.

    We are flexible with weekly subs with families on lower incomes but our way of looking at it is if footy clubs, karate, swimming etc can charge £5+ a week then we shouldn't feel so guilty. ALL of our money goes back to the Scouts in some way or another.

    so there ya go...

    maybe you need a long term plan to do some fundraising... make it sociable and a way to have fun with the parents or do it with a specific aim ( a trip or new kit) but don't feel guilty, you spend the money you get...

    all these groups who charge pennies often charge money here and there for stuff that adds up quite quickly...

    We charge £35 a term, £105 a year. As a parent I think its really good value compared to what other activities cost. I think we should under value ourselves but keep an eye on affordability!

    Can anybody beat £27-75 per year?

    Made up of £19-75 HQ capitation -50p cheaper because we pay before 23rd April, & £8 to cover the costs of our quarterly magazine.

    Every other event / activity is self-funding &/or profit-making.

    We charge £10 per term, £30 per year and events as and when, we do fundraising that enables us to subsidise a lot of events, my group are the lowest subs in the whole of Kent I think !!

    £30 per term (£15 per term for each additional sibling) payable however the parent wishes, (most give us a cheque at the beginning of term but a few pay in 3 instalments of £10 per term or similar.

    this works out on average at £2 per week over the whole term. and normally includes a few local days out along with their entry fee for the district swimming gala and the 5 a side competition.

    i think ours is £150 for scouts and explorers, and a bit less for cubs and a bit less for beavers.
    However i think our insurance bill alone was £5400 last year..
