International activities are some of the core elements of Scouting today. Scouting gives young people the chance to experience new cultures, meet new people and learn about the world they live in. Opportunities for International experiences range from Penpals and Weekends Away, to full Expeditions and Jamborees

For further information on International, or help to start your own expedition, please contact the Hampshire International Commissioner International@scouts-hants.org.uk.
