General Information

Epping is located about 25km North West of Sydney, NSW.

New chums attend 4 to 6 meetings on a trial basis and learn about the Scout Movement before being invited to make the Scout Promise and be invested.  Membership forms are available here at the New Members page.

Regular attendance is required at weekly meetings and an occasional weekend activity.  Parents are welcome to assist in our activities and are required to help on the occasional fund raising activity.

What does it cost?

2017 – 2018 Annual fees are $324.  There is also a joining fee of $60 for new members.  Most of this is paid to the NSW Scout Association to cover insurance costs.  Fees are due in February each year and a pro-rata reduction applies if your child joins the group later in the year.  There is a discount if the renewal fees are paid before their due date.

Further information or enrollment enquires contact the Group Leader, Peter Buckley, on 0404 136 350 or (02) 9876 4383.
