Network Scouts

 

Network ScoutsIf 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, orienteering... as well as work on projects helping to support you local community.

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.

Background:

• All members of The Scout Association between 18 and 25 years are members of the Scout Network. As a member of the Scout Network you could be:
- a Leader with another Section
- a Sectional Assistant or Skills Instructor
- a Member of the Scout Fellowship
- a Member in another capacity


Local Networks, can be based at County or District level; some may be focused around a specific activity or location, such as a Gang Show, Activity Centre, climbing or canoeing club. Scout Network programmes reflect the huge variation in Members' interests. Some local Networks will have activities that concentrate on one area of the programme, whilst others will have a wider range. One of the key elements is the opportunity to spend nights away, either under canvas or in other accommodation. Like all those in Scouting aged 18 and over, members of the Scout Network wear a uniform consisting of a ‘stone’ shirt and smart blue trousers or skirt for formal occasions.
