‘Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I’ve been in the Movement since I was a Beaver and I still love it!’
Corinne, Explorer Scout
Explorer Scouts are 14-18 years old and belong to an Explorer Scout Unit. Training and activities depend on the interests of individual Unit members. The Explorer Scout Unit is primarily leader led, but with as much participation in decision making by young people as possible.
Units are encouraged to organise their structure in the way that best suits their local situation. Explorer Scouts are organised on a Scout District basis and there could be one or more Units in a town. There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, parascending, mountaineering and canoe expeditions.
Explorer Scouts wear a beige shirt or blouse with a Unit scarf.
On my honour, I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Scout Law.
