Bringing the

world to you

Wherever you’re from, you are part of a global Scouting community made up of 164 National Scout Organisations from 224 countries and territories around the world. Encouraging our Members to make links with Scouts from all over the world is an important part of what we do, and we can provide many opportunities to connect internationally, from attending worldwide Jamborees at home or abroad to welcoming an international Scout Troop into your community.

As part of my Queen’s Scout Award I went on an expedition to Iceland, which was an incredible experience, especially hiking in the northern part of the country.

The best thing about Blair Atholl is meeting people from all over the world, getting to see Scotland and the fantastic sense of community.

Visits abroad

Follow our Visits Abroad process to help you achieve successful trips. If you don’t want to organise your own trip, look out for opportunities to attend international events on our events calendar.
