‘To anyone who hasn’t tried Scouting before, I say come on up and have a go! I think most people don’t really know that Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I’ve been in the Movement since I was a Beaver Scout and I still love it!’
Explorer Scouts are young people, aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to your local Scout Group, others may be based around different activities such as Jamboree units or Ten Tors training groups.
Not all Units meet each week, because you will often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities. There will be times when you will be busy doing other things such as exams or working, and being an Explorer Scout will have to fit around these.
Explorer Scouting fits in with the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, allowing you to work towards both DofE and Scouting Awards at the same time.
