Ok, so you have been and checked us out and have decided that you want to make our Group, your Group. We think this is fantastic and look forward to you and your family becoming an integral part of Brookvale - Curl Curl Scout Group. You should aim to be invested on the 6th week you attend.
At our Group, like every other Group, our members are invested into the movement. Your investiture is a special ceremony where you will be presented with your badges and scarf and are officially welcomed into the Group. You will also make your law and promise at this time. The law and promise is what all Scouts live by and it is what defines us. We feel that it is a big part of the reason you want to become a Scout. You may not know it, but you will have learnt a lot about your Law and Promise during your initial weeks with us.
There are two forms that need to be completed and signed:
$100 joining fee Payment of a one off joining fee of $100 per youth member is required prior to your investiture. We prefer this to be paid by direct deposit to the group's Westpac Bank account, Brookvale Branch, A/C Name Brookvale Scout Group BSB#: 032-191 A/C#: 180177 (Please write your family name and the reason for payment) but will accept payment by cash and cheque.
After becoming invested your parent(s) will receive an invoice each quarter which covers membership fees for the quarter. Currently, these are $95 and cover ongoing group cost and most weekly meetings. For more details on our fees please see the fee policy.
So you have your uniform, your joining fees are paid and application forms are completed and signed? Then let your section leader know and we will co-ordinate your investiture and officially welcome you to the group. You should complete this process within 5 weeks and be invested on the 6th week.
