Going Abroad

Are you planning a Scouting Visit Abroad  ?

If you are planning a Visit Abroad yourselves there have been some recent changes. There is a new 2-part process to ensure that each trip receives as much help & support they need in order to run their adventure! One of the big changes is now that any member of the Scout Association who undertakes a trip abroad must complete the new process. Even if it is just one adult.

There are many different opportunities within Scouting to take part in many different international activities. Why not check out Programmes Online or some of the other resources on the new 6-25 page. You can also get lots of help and advice on the national pages. You can also download international opportunities with lots of ideas.

Visit Scout Globe Trekker for ideas.
