Explorers

Let’s face it, by the age of 14, most young people know what they want. Explorer Scouts therefore have a big say in what they do, while being supported by adult volunteers. Unit members:

Get to try activities such as power boating, sailing, snow and motor sports

Deliver campsite services – running activities or helping with site maintenance

Fundraise and help in the community

Go on camping expeditions in the UK and abroad

Go for The Queen’s Scout Award, Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold and the Explorer Belt (a 10 day challenge abroad) – all recognised by universities and employers

Train as young leaders – working with an experienced adult, they learn how to run activities for young people aged 6 – 14

We meet on a Friday evening during term time at 7.30pm to 9.30pm
