Scout Network

If you’re 18 to 25 and still want to enjoy your Scouting  you can by joining Scout Network.

As a Scout Network Member you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, orienteering… as well as work on projects helping to support you local community.  Chester’s own Scout Network is known as the Eastgate Network.

Scout Network can give you the opportunity to gain the many awards and qualification made available to you like the King’s Scout Award and Explorer Belt to name just a couple.

You can also, if you choose, get more closely involved in working with the younger Sections and providing them with the same kind of opportunities you’ve had through Scouting.

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.
