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.

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!
