Every Scout Group across Australia is totally self-funded. Funds for each Group are generally raised from annual subscriptions/fees and fundraising activities of the Group.

Many Scout Groups charge a family levy to help cover the cost of insurance for the facility and equipment. At Mount Bruce we DO NOT charge a family levy and we are always looking for ways to minimise costs. 

Scout Association Membership Renewal Fee 
Each year on the 31st March (end of the Scout Year) each member is required to pay an annual membership renewal fee to the Scout Association of Australia, Queensland Branch. Membership renewal fees and new Member fees include:

Section Subscriptions 
Each week the Sections use a number of resources such as craft materials, first aid equipment, maps, ropes etc.  These are all used to enhance the Scouting experience for your son or daughter.  To assist with the purchases of these materials, the normal practice is payment of a weekly subscription of $3.00. 

At Mount Bruce this subscription is $120.00 per child per year.  An invoice for this payment will be issued to each family by the Membership Co-ordinator in April each year and the annual payment can either be paid in full or paid in $40 instalments over 3 terms.  If the instalment option is chosen, reminders emails will be sent out at the beginning of each term.

If your child commences in the Group later in the year, the subscription fees will be pro-rata'd based on the enrolment date.

Note that Mount Bruce Scouts will operate terms as per the public school system, approximately 40 weeks per year unlike sports clubs that charge for a 10-15 week season. 

Please note that all fees are to be paid promptly, within 14 days of receipt of invoice issued by Mount Bruce Scout Group.  For camps and activities payment is made on receipt of the camp/activity notification (we do not invoice for these) and must be paid on acceptance of the invitation to attend the camp or activity.
