Registration & Fees

 

REGISTRATION:

In order to access the clubs facilities you will be required to be a fully registered member. Please download, complete and return ALL the forms in our Registration Pack from the Downloads Section. Please print, complete and return in the post to Ruth Gauld – Director, Beechgrove Scout Hut, Oakhill Crescent Lane, Aberdeen AB15 5HY  please ensure you use the correct postage or the post office will NOT deliver it to us.

You can also put them directly into our postbox (left side of the main door) at the Scout Hut or if you prefer you can scan and email them to Ruth Gauld at info@scampsosc.com

We only charge a one-off registration fee of £25.00 per child or £60.00 for families with 3 or more children (if registering with the service at the same time).

Upon receipt of your completed forms, you will be subsequently offered a place right away or placed on our waiting list.  You will be invoiced £25.00 per child for the registration fee. This is non-refundable even if you choose not to take up a place subsequently offered.

PLEASE NOTE: The date we receive your completed forms determines the date you go onto the waiting list and NOT the date you first contact us OR the date on your form.

We cannot process your membership and your child cannot be placed on a waiting list without fully completed forms.

There are additional charges for some activities and trips which will be detailed in the booking forms which are available nearer the HPS. We always try our best to minimise the extra costs of trips for parents.

Unpaid Fees:

Invoices are issued around 20th of the month via our accounting software called XERO so please look out for this and make sure to save the address to your contacts as sometimes it can be put into the SPAM folder in error.

ALL fees are due in full by the 5th of the month. If paying by Childcare Vouchers please ensure that you allow enough time between sanctioning payment for it and for it to reach us. This can take between 3-5 days. Payment is your responsibility and NOT that of the childcare voucher company. Child Tax Credits can also take a while to implement so please ensure you keep Ruth informed throughout the process to avoid late payment fees..

Please be advised that using our registration number without authorisation to collect Child Care Tax Credits is a criminal offence and punishable by law. We will report anyone using our details without appropriate authorisation.

ALL payments should be made online via the link on the invoice. Our bank details are shown at the foot of the invoice for your reference.

We do NOT accept cash or cheques unless prior permission has been sought and only in very exceptional circumstances.

If fees are more than 3 days late £10.00 per day will be added until the bill is paid in full. If however after 7 days, payment has still not been received your child/children can no longer attend Scamps until all outstanding payments have been received. PLUS we may request payment in advance for any further care in the future.

Any account that is overdue by 30 days or more will automatically be forwarded to our debt collection agent for recovery. Late fees and interest will be added.
