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.


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!


Joining

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

POR Rule 9.1b Policy
24/08/2020 By Vacant Vacant
Explorer Mixed Group

All,

POR (rule 9.1b) states that “the District Commissioner is responsible for approving all activities for Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. This will usually be by means of an informal system agreed between the District Commissioner and each Group Scout Leader or District Explorer Scout Commissioner”.

Following several questions it became clear that different people had different ideas about our informal agreement, so I've written a document to clarify the position which can be accessed here.

I hope this document takes a common sense approach and won’t significantly change how we safely carry out the vast majority of our Scouting activities.

If anybody has any comment or queries, please get in touch with me.

Mark
