Network

What is Network?

Scout Network is our fifth and final section for 18-25 year olds.

Whether you’re completely new to Scouts or have been with us since you were 5 years old, joining is a great way to meet new people, seek out new challenges and see the world. Because being a grown up shouldn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun.

What do Network members get up to?

Scout Network connects 20,000 18-25 year olds across the UK, and gives them the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting projects and events centred on the themes of ‘Adventure’, ‘Community’ and ‘International’.

If you’re 18 to 25 and still want to enjoy your Scouting you can by joining Scout Network. As a Scout Network Member you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, mountaineering … as well as work on projects helping to support you local community.

Scout Network can give you the opportunity to gain the many awards and qualification made available to you like Queens Scout Award and Explorer Belt to name just a couple.

You can also, if you choose, get more closely involved in working with the younger Sections and providing them with the same kind of opportunities you’ve had through Scouting.

Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and ultimately want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.

Activities

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a District Scout Network Commissioner.
