Welcome to British Scouting Overseas

Providing British Scouting in 28 Countries across the globe

The Scouts are the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation; British Scouting Overseas provides British Scouting across the globe to over 3,000 young people.

We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities. Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment.

We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
