Meet Tuesdays 8:15 - 9:30pm


Explorers are the fourth section of the Scouting movement. Right from the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.


During the late 1990s the Scout Association decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should be two sections for the over-14s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.


Explorer Scouts are the senior section for young people aged 14 - 18 yrs and we are lucky enough to have our own Explorer Unit.
