Explorer Scouts are aged between 14 and 18. We have one Unit attached to our Scout Group but most are just linked straight to Districts, or are formed for specific needs such as Gang Shows.

Whilst at Explorers, young people have the chance to work towards badges and awards and even take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme. Whilst furthering their personal development, Explorers can work with our other sections as Young Leaders, assisting with our Beavers, Cubs or Scout Troops.

Explorers continue to learn about themselves and the world around them and are encouraged to work individually and be more self sufficient with the support of their Leaders and Group behind them.
