For more information on how Scouting works at 25th Camberwell Scouts & Dulwich Explorers, please click on the button:
For clarity, mainly for Dulwich College pupils, Scouting activities are organised and provided by the 25th Camberwell Scout Group / Dulwich Explorers, and youngsters need to be a member of the Scout Association to participate. Dulwich College sponsors the Group, providing support with headquarters space, use of minibuses, etc., but Scouting activities are organised by the Scout Group, not Dulwich College.
There is an annual subscription (£110 in 2018-19) which covers the annual capitation fee to the Scout Association Headquarters for insurance and the operating costs of the Scout movement; weekly meeting costs; and a contribution towards the cost of running the Scout Van and our wider equipment replacement. Trips, camps, and activities are usually charged separately. Cost should not be a barrier to anyone taking part in Scouting and there are a number of sources of support available if this is an issue. Please speak with your Section Leader in confidence. Subscription payments can be made via OSM.
If you are a UK tax payer, we would urge you to make your son's/daughter's subscription subject to Gift Aid because, as a charity, we can benefit from the recovery of income tax, adding significantly to our annual income. To do this, simply complete the Gift Aid declaration in OSM.
