Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.
So why join Scout Network
When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.
The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.
Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.
Example activities include:
Abseiling, award work, bowling, camping, circus skills, climbing, cooking, games, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and water sports.
So what are projects and events?
A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.
An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events here. The flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and pace that suits you!
Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.
