Scout Network

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. We are the Scout Association's best kept secret but have an awful lot of fun, adventure and challenge.


Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of Programme Co-ordinators.  The three main areas of activity are adventure, community impact and international and members start projects in these areas and other Network members choose which projects to join.


This might be from gaining a 3 star award in Canoeing or Climbing Wall Awards to working with charities such as dementia friends or water aid (and many more) to helping to build an orphanage in Kenya.

We also run a full Duke of Edinburgh's Award programme and have current teams completing their Gold Award.

Many member also just join for the social activities and camps, or because they are already a leader in the District.

Unlike the other sections which involve a regular commitment, Network can be as much or as little as you want it to be and can fit perfectly around family, job and social commitments.  It is free to join at entry and then you just pay for the activities you do at whatever they cost.  It can be the ideal way to meet likeminded people and get involved in new activities, or progress and achieve recognition in those activities you already enjoy.


Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.
