Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders.
Explorers meet as a District Unit here at The Mansergh on Monday evenings. The section also includes the Young Leaders' Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections. We often have Young Leaders assisting with the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and it strengthens their leadership skills as well as still being a part of The 8th.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme starts at age 14 and runs concurrently with the Queens Scout Award during their training and the activities tend to be more adventurous than previous sections.
If you would like to join the District Explorers at The Mansergh please complete the form and we will contact you with details.
