Explorer Scouts

Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders.


The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.

There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.

Explorers may volunteer as Young Leaders within local Groups and this great experience for them.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
