Scout Network is the fifth and final section of the Scouting movement. Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.

Example activities include abseiling, camping, circus skills, climbing, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering and watersports.

If you’re moving away from home, for example to go to university, you can carry on Scouting through Scout Network (or as an adult volunteer) by informing your Area or District Commissioner that you are relocating. They will be able to put you in contact with the Commissioner for the area you are moving to and pass them your details.

Another option is SSAGO, the Student Scout and Guide Organisation. SSAGO has branches at many universities and is open to all students at university or higher education college in the UK.
