The Scout Network is for 18 to 25 year olds who wish to continue their personal development through Scouting.
There are many different activities and awards available to Scout Network members. Scout Network members can also continue to carry out other roles in Scouting, for example they could be:
- a Leader with another Section
- a Helper or Skills Instructor
- a member of the Scout Fellowship
- a member in another capacity
The Scout Network is based at County level and organises meetings and events across the county; some may be focused around a specific activity or location such a Gang Show, an activity centre, climbing or canoeing.
Scout Network programmes reflect the huge variation in Members' interests. Some local Networks have activities that concentrate on one area of the programme, whilst others will have a wider focus. One of the key elements is the opportunity to get away, either under canvas or in other accommodation.
There are many different ways to be a member of the Scout Network. Members don't have to stick with one group of members and can join in with as much or as little as they like, depending on their other commitments.
