Our Explorer Unit

Explorers are the fourth section in the Scouting movement and are aged between 14 and 18 years old.

We have strong ties to our district explorer units and more information can be found here: Swindon North Scouts.

Explorer Scouts 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.

They also have the opportunity to become a young leader and volunteer with another section.  This can be used towards other awards such as the Duke of Edinburgh award.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
