Petworth & Pulborough Scout District

As Scouts, we prepare young people with #SkillsforLife in West Sussex

Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and ultimately want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.

So why join Scout Network

When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.

The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.

Example activities include:

Abseiling, award work, bowling, camping, circus skills, climbing, cooking, games, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and water sports.

So what are projects and events?

A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.

An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events here. The flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and  pace that suits you!


Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.

Petworth Park Virtual Camp
21/03/2021 By Chris Evans
Welcome to Petworth Park Virtual Camp 2021, the camp is on the weekend of 27th/28th March to make the most of the time that we're stuck at home!

Petworth Park Camp has been running since 1979 with a mix a of adventurous and creative activities to include and involve everyone.  This is the second year that we've not been able to go to Petworth Park so we wanted to bring a bit of camp to you at home.  We've tried to keep things easy and screen time to a minimum with an opening and closing ceremony, campfire and Taskmaster on Zoom, everything else you can do at your leisure.  All of the activity sheets will be available at link below.  There will be a photography challenge and a map symbols scavenger hunt around each of the villages in the District/Division to be completed over the weekend; the scores from these will go towards the Virtual Camp Trophy; some villages do have much more interesting symbols than others!
You can see the programme and all of  the activities here
The virtual opening ceremony is online here
The virtual campfire is online here

The weekend is running though Zoom, our private Facebook group and this website.  To be added to the FB page or to request the Zoom details please email pp@pandpscouts.org.uk and let us know which unit in P&P Scouts or Petworth Division Guides you belong to
The weekend is aimed at Scouts & Guides although Explorers, Rangers, siblings and parents are welcome to join in too.
Camp badges will be available after the event so please can we ask leaders to get their unit orders in by 7th April, we anticipate the cost to be £1.50 per badge and we will share the artwork asap.
If you have any questions please contact us through the FB group or email.

We look forward to seeing you at camp
Stay Safe!
