Explorer 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.

As an Explorer Scout you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, orienteering, as well as the opportunity to work on projects helping to support your local community.

There are also a range of ambitious badges and awards, through which Explorers can demonstrate their proficiencies and expand their interests.
