Joining Cubs

The subscription is currently £ 30.00 for each of the three terms each year, paid at the start of each term. Please pay by BACS to account 30-91-87 00119234 with a reference like ‘TUE CUBS SUBS A NOTHER’ or by cheque made payable to ‘Charlton Kings Scouts’ and write your child’s name and section (for example ‘Monday Cubs’) on the reverse.

Cubs receives about 40% of this money, the rest goes to the Scout Association and mainly covers insurance. Gift Aid currently funds the general upkeep and maintenance of the Scout hall and improvements are entirely funded by fundraising activities organised by the Executive Committee.

We need parents to help at Cubs at least once a term and we find most parents enjoy this – whether it is with craft activities, cooking, walks or sometimes just to maintain the Adult to child ratios for outdoor activities. In common with other organisations, we are required to ensure that all adults working in residential sitations (overnight) children complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application form before you can help at overnight camps.

It is useful to us if all parents can indicate any special interests, hobbies or skills they may have as this can sometimes be helpful when considering assistance with particular programme ideas. We always welcome help and if you would like to help on a more regular basis with this or any of the other sections or perhaps with fundraising, please let us know.
