SCOUTS - Be Prepared

All About Scout Network

The Scout Network is the last for the 5 training sections in the Scout Programme and any one between the ages of 18 and 25 can join. As a member of the Scout Network you could be:

  • a member of a local Network

  • a Leader with another Section

  • a Helper of Skills Instructor

  • a member of the Scout Fellowship

  • a member in another capacity

Local Networks, can be based at County, District or Group; some may be focused around a specific activity or location, e.g. Gang Show, Activity Centre, climbing or canoeing.

Scout Network programmes will 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 get away, either under canvas or in other accomodation.
