Explorers - 14 to 18 years

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 might 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've been abroad, a lot! Always on the lookout for new, exciting places and activities. Our global travels 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 our travels again in 2023.
