Our son attended is first Cub Scout session last night at Kawana. He had a fantastic time.
About 10 mins before it ended, the leader handed us some forms to fill out and advised us of the fees. We couldnt believe it. They want $114 per month to join.
We thought it would just be subs every week (a couple of $$) and maybe donations every now and then. even an aussie couple we got talking to were shocked. They asked if they could wait a few weeks to see if there child likes and settles. The leader said they can have 1 more free week and then fee due.
Our son wants to go back and we will happily pay the fees but we feel its just a bit steap at over $1300 a year plus uniform, plus camps.
