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

What is Scout Network?

Scout Network is our fifth and final section for 18-25 year olds.

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.

    What do Network members get up to?

    Scout Network connects 20,000 18-25 year olds across the UK, and gives them the opportunity to take part in a huge range of exciting projects and events centred on the themes of ‘Adventure’, ‘Community’ and ‘International’.

    Network groups are flexibly run and self-led.

    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.

    Being a member of Scout Network is also a great way to keep working towards your top awards, including the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme and Queen’s Scout Award. By joining Whitley Bay & District Scout Network, you’ll continue to be able to work towards your awards supported by our DofE instructors. 

    Join the adventure

    We have a Scout Network unit in Whitley Bay & District but that doesn't mean you have to be local to join. Many of our members may have moved away from the area for university or work but get back involved when they return for holidays or as work allows. Email or visit our contact us page to enquire about joining.
