How can they participate in scouting events away from home? Twin Scouting Connect with a Scout group in another country by developing a twin scouting relationship. Not only will it expand their knowledge of another scouting life and cultures, but it will also increase their scouting’s global impact.

They will also have ways of sharing their new scouting experience to scout groups at home through various media.
