Taking a Scouting group abroad
If you are taking a group of young people abroad, then you need to look at the information in the factsheet Thinking of Going Away (FS260018). It provides an outline of the areas you will need to consider.
Do not forget to get a copy of the Visits Abroad Folder from your Regional Adviser. This contains Form TA which must be submitted before travelling abroad.
Have you been on a trip abroad with scouts? Organised an expedition in another country? Or are you looking for inspiration for an overseas adventure? Globe Trekker is an interactive trip and expedition planning tool. Users have the ability to leave reports of their visits to help and inspire others.
Each country has an information box containing general information, useful links and access to submitted reports.
With reports from China to Canada, Nepal to the Netherlands, Globe Trekker is full of advice and guidance to help you plan your next Scout trip overseas.
