Prospective members are welcome to come along to a couple of activities prior to committing to join. Annual financial membership is from July to June each year (pro rata for those joining part way through the year). Fees provide us with insurance cover for our activities.

The current membership fees are as follows:

  • Annual membership fee: $50
  • Distance membership fee: $20 - available to families who live beyond a 200 km radius from the Canberra CBD.
  • Legacy: $5 - for those members who have been members of HENCAST for at least 3 consecutive years and their youngest child is over 15 and no longer home educated. Also available for those members now living overseas.
