Scouting is

active in 216 countries

Hertfordshire Scouts have a long tradition of being actively involved in a lively international programme and taking part in a variety of global events.


All sections of the Movement from Beaver Scouts to members of the Scout Network, the Active Support Units and adult leaders can participate in international activities. The international dimension in the weekly programme can offer many opportunities for young people to get involved in global challenges.

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts can work towards achieving global challenge awards.

Explorers can gain the coveted Queen’s Scout Award and go on with members of the Scout Network to win the Explorer Belt. Groups or individual sections can participate in the International Friendship Partnership Award.
