How much does Scouts cost?

In Scouts we don’t want cost to be a barrier to attendance, as such we try to keep costs as low and as accessible as possible.

Membership fees

In Golcar we have a membership subscription of £24 per term (Squirrels and Beavers) or £30 per term (Cubs, Scouts and Explorers)

Payment is taken 3 times a year, to cover the following time periods, April to July, August to October and November to March.

Our membership fees, cover our building running costs, consuables and meeting night activites. The fee also covers membership of The Scouts, which includes member insurance, and critical central functions like safeguarding, vetting and volunteer services and support.

Activites and Events

Activities and events are paid for separately depending on if the young person wants to attend, however, we always try to keep our costs to a minimum and high-cost trips usually allow for multiple payments spread over a payment plan.


We know that living costs have increased signifficantly over the last few years, this does mean that some members may need support to attend Scout events. If you need support, please speak with the leader team in confidence.
