Explorer scouts

Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.

With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers. With exciting prospects like being a part of camps and expeditions both home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all.

Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections.

Here in Fetcham our Explorer unit meets weekly with other District Units  7.30 – 9.30pm
Most of our members are Young Leaders with the younger sections within our Scout Group.

Our Explorer Scout Unit also offers Young Leader Training to the whole of Leatherhead District. Many of our Explorers are Young Leaders with the younger sections.

  • Explorer Unit – Wednesday  7.30 – 9.30pm location varies
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
