Active Kids

“Participation in Scouting leads to a lifelong association with the outdoors and an active lifestyle.”

– Chief Commissioner, Neville Tomkins OAM JP

Scouts NSW is an eligible provider of the Active Kids rebate.

From 31 January 2018, parents and carers of school-aged children in Scouts can receive a $100 voucher to go towards covering membership fees for the calendar year. One voucher will be available for every child in the family annually over the next four years, ensuring families who want their children to enjoy the Scout program can send their children to Scouts.

Scouts NSW has worked closely with the NSW Office of Sport to ensure the program is implemented effectively, and is integrated as seamlessly as possible so that Scouting families can redeem their vouchers easily.
