Scout Adventurer, Scout Adventures

Scout Adventures are looking for volunteers from all over the world who want to have fun, make friends and gain qualifications. Each year they recruit up to 120 volunteers from over 30 countries to help run Scout Adventures across the UK.

You could be doing anything from leading a kayaking session to checking-in guests, to running a game for 50 Scouts.

Based at one of nine sites around the UK, the view from your room could be anything from acres of beautiful woodland to lakes that stretch as far as the eye can see!

Long-term volunteers stay for placements of 2, 5, 8 or 12 months at a time. Available placements vary from centre to centre, but the main volunteer intakes are in March for the summer season and September for the winter.

CAN I APPLY?
