Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, plan evenings and activities in order to have the opportunity to be creative, design their own programme and achieve top awards within scouting.
Explorer Scouts are young people, aged between 14 and 18 years old, explorers are given the opportunity to take part in many camps, expeditions both in the UK and overseas, whilst being given the experience of adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing. 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.
