Network Information

Scout Network is our sixth and final section for 18 to 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.

Looking to join Network?

Your District Scout Network Commissioner is your first port of call. If you don't have one in your district, your District Commissioner is the next person to ask. You may also want to check whether your university has a Student Scout and Guide Organisation (SSAGO).

Network members start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It all starts with an award.

The Ramblers’ Challenge is open to all Scout Network members and all adult leaders and volunteers (aged 18 or over) across North Yorkshire and the NE Scout region.

The Ramblers' Challenge

The challenge is to either walk, run, sail or row for a total of 200 miles (or 400 miles by bicycle or skateboard) over a consecutive four-month period. That works out at either 50 or 100 miles every month and members can decide when they want to start the challenge.

Scout Network members and Adult Volunteers who wish to take on this challenge will first need to register their intention to complete this challenge.
