Merseyside Explorers

Moving on

Scouting doesn't stop at 18, theres another 7 years available to you through the Scout Network!

Here in Merseyside we have one of the largest and easily recognisable networks in the country & we are looking forward to welcoming all Explorers upon reaching 18 years old.

Going off to Uni but don't want to give up Scouting?

If your a member from outside of Merseyside coming to study here your more than welcome to register as a member of Merseyside network, it's a descision you'll never regret!

With an active programme and an enthusiastic network team you'll love being a member of Merseyside Network.
