Enrollment and Frequently Asked Questions

What Does It Cost?

For 2023 the subs are:

  • Meerkats: R160.00 per month
  • Cubs: R240.00 per month
  • Scouts: R240.00 per month

In order to keep the fees as low as possible, the fees are payable over 12 months. A 10% discount in the Term Fees, is applicable if the annual fees are paid in full by the end of February.

There is also a once-off joining fee per child (to cover the cost of the scarf, woggle, T-Shirt, badges and booklet, which a Meerkat / Cub / Scout receives when they are invested:

  • Meerkats: R540.00
  • Cubs: R 360.00
  • Scouts: R410.00

The monthly fee also covers the cost of the fee which we pay to Scouts South Africa for each Meerkat / Cub / Scout enrolled, as well as the running costs of the hall.

How Do I Start?

We encourage the children to come join the Den / Pack / Troop for 3 or 4 weeks to “try it out” before they officially join and then, when they are sure they want to get involved, they are “invested” (get a uniform and join the group officially). During this time, there are no fees charged.

All you need to do to start is pitch up 15 min before the meeting starts to introduce yourselves to any of the adult Scouters in uniform. They will ask you to sign a consent form which gives them some basic in-case of emergency contact information. You are welcome to hang around for the first few meetings to see them settle in or you can “drop and go” depending on your child.

Where Do I Go?

The hall is situated next to the Boskruin Community Centre (but the entrance is in Tintinkie Road), between the Bowling Club and Wendy’s Playschool. Off Kelly Road, down Hofsanger Road and then right into Tintinkie.
