"Last week we were out in the Brecon Beacons. This week we’re up in the Lakes helping some Scouts take their first trip on the water. Where else can you make a difference and have an excellent time yourself? Scouting – it’s recommended."
Scout Network is the fifth section of the Scouting movement. From the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.
During the late 1990s we decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should be two sections for the over-14s:
- Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds; and
- the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.
