With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers.
With exciting prospects like being a part of camps and expeditions both home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all. Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections.
Explorer Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
In addition, there are a number of activity badges and ambitious top awards that Explorer Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
Explorer Scouts are the fourth section in the group following on from Scouts and are aged between 14 and 18 years old, although some flexibility is possible an Explorer Scout must leave their unit by their 18th birthday. Our Unit meets on a Wednesday night between 8.00 and 9.30pm.
