The Scout Association offers fun and everyday adventure to 573,000 young people between the ages of 6 and 25 across the United Kingdom.


As Scouts we are part of a family of over 40 million members spread all across the world.  Scouting offers our young people the chance to discover and explore that world (‘world’ is one of our three main programme themes), to link up with Scouts around the world, to travel and much more.

In the international pages of the Surrey Scouts website you will find information about:

Visits Abroad – there are a huge range of options for where to go and what to do

County Expeditions  – every few years Surrey Scouts travel abroad together as a county expedition

Global Programme – ideas for getting started with delivering international activities in your programme

World Scout Jamboree – info about Surrey’s participation in Scouting’s largest World event

Roverway – info about Surrey’s participation in this European event

World Scouting – an intro to our worldwide family

International Adventures – stories from groups and individuals that have travelled abroad as Scouts

If you need more info, ideas or advice about the international side of Scouting the team are here to help – please do get in touch.
