What are the benefits?
You have the opportunity to make a new friend from within our international family.
For many this will help you complete part of your award scheme and ensure you learn about the life of another scout in their part of the world.
You can build a relationship with your Pen pal that can last a lifetime.
Your whole Mob, Pack, Troop or Unit can get involved with your section equivalent somewhere in the world and swap program ideas and camp experiences.
Leaders can exchange ideas and gain support from an international source who has, in most cases, similar interests and goals.
