Explorer Scouts are for young people from the age of 14 to 18. They can also be Young Leaders and help out with other sections.  Our Explorers meet every week on Thursday’s, 7.45pm - 9pm, weekly subs are £2.  They wear uniform which is a brown shirt, navy trousers and our Group Kneckerchief.

 

Let’s face it, by the age of 14, most young people know what they want. Explorer Scouts therefore have a big say in what they do, while being supported by adult volunteers. Unit members:

 

To try activities such as power boating, sailing, snow and motor sports

Deliver campsite services - running activities or helping with site maintenance

Fundraise and help in the community

Go on camping expeditions in the UK and abroad

Go for The Queen’s Scout Award, Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold and the Explorer Belt (a 10 day challenge abroad) – all recognised by universities and employers

Train as young leaders – working with an experienced adult, they learn how to run activities for young people aged 6 - 14.

 

One of the Explorers is currently on the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia, USA, after spending two years fundraising to go.  In July the Explorers had a wide game on Robinswood Hill and finished the month with laser tag.  In June all sections joined together for a weekend Group camp at Trac, where they enjoyed plenty of games, rafting, paddle boats, zip wire, pedal karts, tyre swing and camp fire.  During May they enjoyed an evening kayaking on the Gloucester & Sharpness Canal during Go Canoe Week and working towards their paddle sport staged badges, some of them also went to Evolution.  In April the Explorers joined the rest of the Group for an Easter Egg Hunt and wide game on Robinswood Hill and also took part in St. Georges Day Parade.  During March 18 of the Explorers went along to Cubs and taught them the Digital Maker Badge Stage 1.  In February 5 Explorers took part in the Cotswold Marathon, 2 teams taking on the Silver route of 20 miles and the Gold route of 30 miles.

 

Here you will find a diagram showing the position of Badges and Awards on the uniform.  You can find out about the badges that Explorers can earn on the National Scout Website, you will find the link for this on our Useful Links page.
