If you’re 14 to 18 and want to enjoy Scouting you can do so by joining Explorer Scouting. As an Explorer
Scout you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, orienteering… as well as work on projects helping to support your local community.
The Unit is Leader led, with as much participation in decision making by young people as possible. Explorer Scouts have no structured groupings like patrols, as you find in Beavers, Cubs or Scouts.
On a normal camp you will find us making fires, shooting at archery targets, playing with Wing Sligs (catapults that fire water bombs). We have camps where the main activty is canoeing or where we practice out ‘back to basic’ skills and cook on open fires.
At least two of our Camps about about a quarter of our meetings revolve around the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. The Duke of Edinburgh’s award is designed to challenge your people to try new things and attempt activities which they would not otherwise attempt.
