Membership fee for Guides and Scouts
With the price of the yearly membership fee you can join the activities organized by your local group, the district organization or the Scouts and Guides of Finland.
The membership fee for the year 2019 is 63,50 €. If there is more than one member in the same family, the other members from 7 to 17-year-olds will pay a lower membership fee of 53,50 €. For children from 4 to 6-year-olds membership fee is 12,25 € and children from 0 to 3-year-olds participation is free of charge.
If you join during the fall, the membership fee covers your membership for the rest of year and the next year as well.
In addition, some local groups may set their own membership fee of 10–50€, which is added to the regular fee and billed together.
What is included?
The membership fee includes membership of both The Guides and Scouts District of Uusimaa and The Guides and Scouts of Finland. It includes:
- scouting activities and weekly meetings
- secondary accident and luggage insurance
- two member magazines (national and district level)
- 10 % discount in scouting stores in Finland
If you are not a member but are interested in attending our events or local meetings, you are very welcome to do so! You can attend three meetings/camps/events before deciding whether you want to become a scout or not. The district events have a higher attendance fee (plus 20€) for non-members.
Exemption from the membership fee
In case you are not able to pay the membership fee because of sudden illness, unemployment or family issues, you can apply for exemption of the fee. Please contact our executive director.
