If you are aged 18-25 and either an existing leader/helper or perhaps a former member of The Scout Association or Girlguiding then the Scout Network is your natural “home” within the wider Scouting Family.
As an existing leader/helper within Scouting in this age group, The Scout Association now already grants you automatic membership of the Scout Network. This is a recent change aimed at giving former Explorer Scouts and new “young adults” an opportunity to gain their Queen’s Scout Award, or to work for a Duke of Edinburgh Award – something you may have regretted not completing, or perhaps a challenge which you might, even now, like to embark upon.
If you don’t have a Scouting or Girlguiding background don’t panic. You too can join Network and strive for your DofE or Queen’s Scout Award – or simply enjoy the opportunity of networking with others who enjoy Scouting and all it has to offer! (University Students often find this a useful way to retain a connection with Scouting whilst studying for their degree).

We encourage our Beavers to go camping!
It enables them to experience the fun and challenge of camping under canvas for one night – the maximum allowed in the Beaver Scout section. It prepares them for longer camps of 2 or more nights when they move into the Cub Scout section.
It gives them an opportunity to get to know other Beavers in a relaxed, friendly and, above all, safe environment, with leaders who are specifically trained to ensure their safety and well-being whilst they are away from home. Read More
