ARE YOU PREPARED FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT?
Whether you are new to Scouting or have been a Member for many years, the Explorer Scout Section will be unlike anything you have experienced before. You are now a senior Member of the largest youth Movement in the world. Over 28 million people like you have taken the Scout Promise and are currently enjoying Scouting. Find out what choices you have and map your continuing journey through Scouting. You will be working towards the Queen’s Scout Award – the highest award in Scouting.

NO LIMITS
The opportunities available to you as an Explorer Scout are limitless. Grab these opportunities while you can!

WHEN CAN I BECOME AN EXPLORER SCOUT?
You may already be one! Explorer Scouts are usually aged between 14 and 18. It is possible, however, to join at 13½ and leave at 18. Why is this? The flexibility at both ends of the age range allows you to join and leave when it suits you. You may want to join Explorer Scouts at the same time as your friends or you may wish to join at the start of the school year. If you are already a Scout, you may wish to join when you have finished a particular badge or activity. Likewise, you can move on to the Scout Network between the ages of 17½ and 18½, with your friends or when you complete certain activities or awards as an Explorer Scout.

WHAT DO EXPLORER SCOUTS DO?
During your time as an Explorer Scout you will have many new experiences both inside and outside Scouting. You might have to take important examinations at school and be asked to make choices about which subjects to study next. As an Explorer Scout, you will also be asked to make choices. You can choose which Explorer Scout Unit to join and what sort of activities you want to take part in. Whether it’s canoeing, abseiling, or parascending – with a little organisation and some forward planning, all these things are now possible!
