Try more. See more. Do more. At Explorers, you’ll stand on your own two feet, and make memories to last a lifetime.
Explorers are a go-getting group of young people aged 14 to 18. Together, they make up the fourth section of the Scouts. Every week they meet together to try new things, make new friends and conquer the small task of changing the world.
Being an Explorer is all about discovering the world on your own terms and making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.
Alongside your new friends, you’ll master the skills that will make you feel stronger and happier in the long run and try adventures that you’d never get the chance to do at home or at school - like camping, back-packing, mountain-biking, rafting, canoeing, climbing; abseiling or enjoying a trip abroad. Regardless of who you are - whatever your physical ability - there’s an adventure out there waiting for you. And we’ll help you find it.
Whether you’re hiking to faraway lands or building a robot in your Scout Hall, you’ll have the freedom to choose what you’d like to do and work together with adults to make it happen.
There will be times when you will be busy doing other things such as exams, but don't worry, Explorers fits around these - we're flexible with other things you need to do.
We also like to go abroad - finding new, exciting places and activities. Our global travels over recent decades have taken us to Japan, the USA, Switzerland, Italy, France, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and South Africa. We hope we’ll be able to start travelling again at some time in the future.

Once again, our young people are starting to meet up outdoors and take part in the activities they love.
With the proper precautions in place they've been hiking, tent-pitching, fire-lighting, exploring the local woods and taking part in a whole range of exciting activities at Scout Adventures, Fordell Firs.

With proper precautions and procedures in place, we're now able to meet indoors. We prefer the great outdoors, but this is great because Scottish weather doesn't always co-operate with outdoor activities!
Things may not be completely normal, but we're getting there.
