For parents

Membership fees and activity costs


Membership fees are £13.50 per month. We ask that you pay these by standing order or electronic payment on the 1st of each month. Details for electronic payments are available from us.


Other events and activities are charged separately. They are always on a "best value for money" basis and for main camps and expeditions, there are  opportunities for young people to raise funds to help reduce the cost of the events. Trips and days outs are at the best prices we can get - usually helped along by group discounts!


We operate an Activity Bank payment scheme, which allows you to pay for events in instalments. It also shows you a record of the events and payments made. We provide weekly statements to your e-mail address, along with news and information about Group activities.


We want our members to get as much out of Scouting as possible and we're always happy to discuss any difficulties around payment.




Wearing a uniform is comfy and practical. It means no one feels uncomfortable or left out and helps everyone feel part of the group.


There are some activities and events when uniform is not needed and we let you know this in advance.


Our uniform consists of a sweatshirt or shirt that you can sew badges on and a "Red McLean" tartan scarf or 'necker’ to represent the Scout Group. There are lots of other optional Scout-branded accessories you can wear such as hats, hoodies, trousers or shorts.


You can buy your shirts and kneckies in person from:


Dunfermline Scouts local Scout Shop at St Leonards Church. Access from car park in Woodmill Road. Shop is in the church outbuildings, just inside the gates. Note, this shop is open on Saturday mornings during term time.


Online from our national Scout Store:

Where to sew those badges!


Once you have the uniform, just where do all those badges go? Well, you can download a helpful guide her, to make sure they end up in the right place.

Other things your youngster might need


For activities such as hikes and camps, you'll need to have access to some other personal kit, such as:

  • Rucksack
  • Sleeping bag
  • Walking boots
  • Waterproofs

Whilst you may want to have your own items, we maintain a small stock of these items and you may be able to borrow from us (for a nominal hire fee) when taking part in activities that might need them.


Safeguarding matter are covered in our second page More for Parents


Finally, if there's anything we haven't covered here, please ask your youngster's Section Leader. If they don't have an answer, they'll know someone who does!
