The Ultimate Scouting Adventure
If you're 18 to 25 and want to continue or get involved with the
ultimate Scouting adventure you can join the Scout Network.
As a Scout Network Member you are in the driving seat - network
groups decide their own activities and programme. It's very much a
case of like minded individuals coming together to organise
activities, trips and social life and with the backing of The Scout
Association the costs are lowered, opportunities easier to find and
there are always people on hand who know the best place to go to
climb, hike, zorb…whatever takes your fancy.
Networkers get to take part in all the usual great Scouting
activities such as kayaking, climbing, orienteering as well as
working on projects helping to support your local community or
international communities in need. You can also, if you choose, get
more closely involved in working with the younger Sections.
Typical 'programmes' for networkers include going to festivals,
night hikes, mountain biking (sometimes with a pub stop!) climbing,
travelling overseas to help on a community project, helping younger
Sections, all the while gathering some great info for the for CV.
Networkers come from all walks of life from university students new
to the area, through newcomers to scouting who are interested in
adventurous pursuits, to locals who have been in Scouts since they
were 6! All are welcome.
Members are encouraged to obtain qualifications through National
Governing Bodies, for example some of our members have gained
training qualifications through the British Canoe Union - they can
also take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and gain the
highly respected Queen's Scout Award. Amazing additions to any CV
and also fun. Networkers never stand still!
