Scout Network is our fifth and final section, for 18-25 year olds.
Whether you’re completely new to Scouts or have been with us since you were 5 years old, joining is a great way to meet new people, seek out new challenges and see the world. Because being a grown up shouldn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun.
Network is the most important section in Scouting, whether for scouting "lifer's" who started in Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, or who were late joiners in Explorers, this 7 year section from your 18th Birthday until your become 25, your will be a part of a network of 20,000 like-minded people.
Whether you’re organising a local meet-up or a once in a lifetime trip to the Amazon, it’s all about working together to build new skills, seek out new experiences and make a difference in the world.
Network groups are flexibly run and self-led. Members can create profiles on the Scout Network website, using the platform to meet others with similar goals and share their progress. There are 395 virtual badges currently available to achieve, and members can also work towards a number of Top Awards. A full list of badges and awards can be found here.
