Scout Network

Scout Network

Your Scouting experience doesn’t need to stop when you turn 18. Welcome to Network: our adventure-seeking, skill-boosting section for under-25s.

Being a Network Member

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 different from the other sections in the Scouts as its based at national level with national events and activities. Click the first link to register as a Network member, and then click the second link to join in the fun at Horsham Network.

What you’ll get up to

Network members have the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting projects and events centred on the themes of ‘Adventure’, ‘Community’ and ‘International’. 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.

Badges & Awards

Network members start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It all starts with an award.

The Promise

As an inclusive and values based Movement, membership is open to all those individuals who share our fundamental values, and are willing to make a commitment to them, expressed by the Promise and Law.

Uniform and badge placement

You don’t need a uniform to join Network. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start to earn awards and will need somewhere to put them.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
