The Blackmans Bay Scout Group fees are $200 per year for one child, $320 per year for 2 children and $400 for three. New members pay a pro rata fee depending on what time of the year they join. This pays for the Scout Hall running costs and maintenance, badges, equipment used, insurances on hall and equipment, training of leaders etc. Fees paid by parents cover less than half of the running costs of the group with the balance made up through fundraising activities undertaken through the year.
