INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS - GHANA 2018
During the summer of 2018 twenty Kent Explorer Scouts aged 16+, and Network Scouts aged 18-25, are visiting the Volta Region of Ghana West Africa.

Participants will volunteer with the local community, work at schools in developing areas and get to do an exciting excursion to the Cape Coast plus a Volta Adventure weekend.

Participants will support a school by coaching sport, engaging in community work, and classroom teaching.

Most participants fundraise to generate funds for their trip and many successfully fundraise 100% of their trip costs. Participants are encouraged to undertake individual fundraising opportunities where possible.

GET INVOLVED

Young People

We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. Also can learn survival skills, first aid and much more.

There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world. arrow_forward

Adult Volunteers

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support us in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee.

We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

There is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining. All that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting. arrow_forward
