Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18.

Explorers can gain a wide range of badges and awards, particularly activity badges. These can range from canoeing and mountain biking to street sports and even public relations.

Not all Explorer Scout Units meet every week, although many will take part in activities at weekend. Explorer Scout Units will often link up with other Units from their District to take part in a whole range of activities.

A unique part of being an Explorer Scout is the chance to become a Young Leader in the Beaver, Cub and Scout Sections. 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!
