Explorers

‘To anyone who hasn’t tried Scouting before, I’d say come on up and have a go! I think that most people don’t really know that Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I’ve been in the Movement since I was a Beaver and I still love it!’

With the support, direction and guidance of Unit Leaders, Explorers 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 at home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all.  They also have the opportunity to be a part of The Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections.  Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, and are aged between 14 and 18 years old.

Explorers normally meet every Tuesday from 7.45-9.45pm.  If you are interested in joining, please add your name to our Waiting List and someone will contact you when we have a space available.  To see more of our adventures, please visit our Facebook page.
