Explorer Logo

Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to a local Scout Group, others may be based around different activities, for example a Gang Show, and not all Explorer Scout Units meet every week. Because of the way Explorer Scouts are organised members get the chance to try more activities by working with other Units.

Young Leaders

A unique part of being an Explorer Scout is the chance to become a Young Leader. This gives Explorers the chance to:

  • gain the knowledge, skills and confidence required to become an effective Leader.
  • further their own personal development .
  • work towards other Awards for example The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
  • acquire the skills that are needed for the Scouts Adult Training Scheme.
  • and above all, have fun!

Young Leaders work with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
