Boundless Possibilities

International activity trips for Scouts offer opportunities in abundance! They’re all about…

Mastering New Skills and Confidence

When Scouting members navigate new terrains, they develop invaluable skills in leadership, teamwork, and outdoor survival. Whether it be river fishing, horse-riding or white-water rafting, our selection of excursions and activities allow Scouts to champion personal development in all areas. Confidence, independence and empowerment are all part of the package!

Fostering a Sense of Community and Belonging

Scouting isn’t just about individual growth – it’s about fostering a sense of community and belonging! Our activity trips carry this to the core! What better way to learn about your fellow members than through a new place with new people, customs, culture and cuisine!

A Deep Reverence for Nature and Our World

From lush valleys to snow-capped mountain summits, Scouts develop a profound appreciation for our world as they explore it first-hand. They come to understand the link between people and place and the importance of sustainability in creating a better future.

And Most Importantly… FUN!

Most importantly, our activity trips are all about fun – pure, proper, feel-good fun! Whether you’re roasting marshmallows around a campfire at Kandersteg International Scout Centre, paddleboarding at night on lit up boards in Croatia, or simply revelling in the joy of friendship, we’re here to help you create memories that last a lifetime.

Embrace the spirit of adventure and seize the moment! There’s a whole world out there waiting to be explored – let’s jump in and get started…
