Join Explorers

The Explorers are responsible for developing and running their own varied programmes, everything from outward bound challenges to first aid, outdoor cookery or helping out a local charity. We also do fundraising to help pay for activities like summer camp.

They enjoy camping, adventurous activities and expeditions. Many members are busy with their International Award for Young People (Duke of Edinburgh award) at various levels from Bronze to Gold. Some are also Young Leaders in younger sections such as Beavers and Cubs.

The Explorers are more flexible about attendance than the younger sections, as we recognise that young people have other priorities at times like school or exam work. The emphasis is on independence and self-reliance.

Open to all young people aged from 13½ to 18.
