With the world often feeling like a smaller place, the International aspect of the Scout programme is as important as ever to teaching young people about other cultures and countries. This can be done in a fun and challenging way and is helped by Scouting's worldwide family of other Scouts.

In this section of the website we hope to bring you the latest and greatest of the International opportunities open to you and your Scouts, help if you planning a trip abroad and give you some details about how you can look at the international aspect of the programme without leaving your Scout hall!
