Joining Scouting

Before your child can participate in any Scout meetings you will need to complete an Application for Youth Membership form (Y1 see attachment below). This will give automatic insurance cover for your child whilst they are deciding if Scouting is for them.

Come And Try

There is a free trial period of three weeks, before paying the membership fees. This will give you and your child a chance to enjoy Scouting before you make a financial commitment.

After the initial three weeks, the Group Leader and Section Leaders would discuss a date for Investiture. On investiture the Affiliation Fee and the membership fee for the first term would be paid. The Affiliation Fee will be sent together with the Y1 to Scouts Headquarters, thereby registering your child as a member of the Scout Association.


With the membership application under way, there are a couple of items that your child will require to get the most out of their scouting. Click here to see what you need
