Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years
old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family
after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
A group of Explorer
Scouts is called a Unit.
Not all Units meet
every week, partly due to activities, holidays, exams and
the other commitments that crop up in a teenager's life, and
also because Explorers tend to get out and about at weekends
more often than other sections.
often get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in
their District, not just their own Unit, so can take part
in an even wider spectrum of activities.
There is also a
range of ambitious badges and awards, through which Explorers
can demonstrate their proficiencies and expand their interests.
