International Opportunities for Summer 2020

We have three major International opportunities for the Summer 2020 for current older Scouts, Explorers and leaders. As a result, we wanted to present these three opportunities at the same time, so anybody that is interested, can easily compare them.


All three expeditions are major International events, and cover a wide range of pricing and expedition types. Between the three, there are potentially up to 470 spaces.


At date of departure, the expeditions are for Explorers, Young Leaders, Network, SSAGO, and Leaders (but this means that older Scouts 12 and over are old enough to apply).
