Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to your local Scout Group.
As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your Unit organises.
Explorer Scouts also have the opportunity to work in younger sections as members of the Young Leader Scheme.
