Explorers

Who are Explorers?

Explorers are young people aged 14 and 18 years old who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Make new friends
  • Have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad
  • Explore the world around them
  • Complete “Top Awards” The Queen Scout and Duke of Edinburgh Award.
  • Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond
  • Explore opportunities in leadership and youth voice.

Every week, they gather in groups called Explorer Units to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.
