Costs

How do I pay my subs or for activities?

Fees Structure:

Paparangi Scout Group, like all other groups, incurs various costs that need to be funded by our families. We receive no other funding apart from fundraising efforts undertaken from time to time.

The first cost incurred is from Scouting New Zealand; which imposes a levy per child that every scout group must collect and on-pay. This levy goes towards the running and promotion of Scouting in New Zealand. This levy rate changes annually and is currently set at $159 per child, per year.

Secondly, as a group we incur various running costs which must be met. The key costs incurred are Insurance, Power, Phone, Badges, and Maintenance.

We collect this through a term fee which is currently set at $50 per term per child ($40 for Keas)

Parents are invoiced in February for the full amount of the levy and term fees. Payment can then be made for the full amount ($319 for Keas and $359 for other troops), or in ten monthly instalments by direct credit (February-November inclusive), of $31.90/month for Keas or $35.90 per month for other troops.

If your child is joining during the year, an invoice will be sent for the amount payable for the balance of the year, which will be in proportion to the remaining months. You may pay this immediately, or commence the monthly payments as described above.
