Explorer Scouts (14–18)
Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme
and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. 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.
There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.
In Gloucester there are units which meet weekly and we also have a Young Leader Unit, where members can train to help at weekly meetings.
