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 and orienteering, 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.


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.

Example activities include:

Abseiling, award work, bowling, camping, caving, climbing, cooking, games, gliding, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and watersports. Joining

Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members. As of November 2015 membership of the section will be expanded to all 18-25 members of the association. This will involve current members who hold other roles in Scouting.
