Explorer Scouts are young people, aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the newest Section of the Scouting family and the sky is literally the limit when it comes to the activities available to them! As an Explorer Scout, you will be able to decide, along with the rest of the Unit, what you want to do - whether it’s powerboating, karting, hiking or exploring the world. The Explorer Scout section is open to all whether you have previous scouting experience or not.
You will be able to work towards the Chief Scout's Diamond and Platinum Awards as well as the highest award in Scouting, the Queen's Scout Award. This is recognised by many employers as the sign of someone that is enthusiastic, dedicated and reliable.
We have recently been informed that there is a rumour we have a very long waiting list to join the Unit. We can confidently confirm that this is not true and that we welcome all that would like to come along - both those of explorer age and those slightly of a more mature nature to help out. Just contact us if you are interested and want to know more.
We meet at Bleak Hill School, Bleak Hill Road, Windle on Friday evenings 7.00 p.m. - 9.00 p.m.
