Explorer Scouts

The Explorer Scout Programme is designed to be attractive and relevant to the Explorer Scouts with the main emphasis being on Participation whilst giving the Explorer Scouts opportunities to gain the Progressive Training Awards, Activity Badges, Group Awards and External Body Qualifications, such as BCU, RYA, First Aid and MLTB.

Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.

There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.
