EXPLORERS 14-18 year olds


EXPLORER SCOUTS make up the fourth section of the scouting family. There are many types of explorer scout units, some may be linked to your local scout group, others may be based around different activities.

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.


If you would like to know more about Explorers, please contact the District Explorer Scout Commissioner Here.
