Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and ultimately want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.


So why join Scout Network

When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.

The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.

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, award work, bowling, camping, circus skills, climbing, cooking, games, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and water sports.


So what are projects and events?

A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.

An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events here. The flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and  pace that suits you!


Joining

Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.

Important News about the Scout Shop
14/09/2018 By DC-Russell Brooks

Dear Leaders and Parents, 

There is currently a dispute ongoing in relation to the renewal of the lease of the Scout Hut at Tallents Crescent.  The landlords have unilaterally changed the locks and told us that we can no longer have access to the hut.  We will continue to try to resolve matters and reinstate our access rights, but in the meantime we have therefore had to temporarily suspend the Scout Shop.

Parents, this means that the Scout shop for the time being will not be opening at Tallents Crescent.  Whilst our shop is closed, we have arranged with St Albans District Scouts that our parents and leaders can use their shop.  A  map and opening times can be found at  http://www.stalbansscouts.org/st-albans-scout-shop/ and in the attached.

Parents can buy all core uniform from the shop.  Scarves will not be available from St Albans Scout shop however, as they were stored at our hut and are locked in for now.  As soon as they are accessible again, we will let you know.

Leaders can buy uniform and badges from the shop.  The shop manager has asked that leaders email her details of the badges they want so she can get them ready for collection (sales@stalbansscoutshop.org.uk).  Leaders will need to pay St Albans shop for badges, and seek reimbursement from their Groups direct.

All the best

Russell Brooks
District Commissioner
