Who we are

Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old and as are all our sections, open to girls as well as boys.  They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts.

The unit plans its programs carefully together, ensuring some activities are done independently but others are held together. This is especially true for the all-important camps and expeditions.

Our Explorer unit doesn’t meet every week, partly due to activities, holidays, exams, and the other commitments that crop up in a teenager’s life, and also because Explorers tend to get out and about at weekends more often than other sections.

Joining the Adventure
