COVID-19 UPDATE...

We have liaised with the Scottish Government and now have no alternative but to move Scouting in all parts of Scotland back to the Red readiness level, from 26th December.

This means no indoor or outdoor meetings, meeting will be held online via Zoom.

We can still welcome new members, please email weare75thscouts@hotmail.co.uk.

Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to a local Scout Group, others may be based around different activities, for example a Gang Show, and not all Explorer Scout Units meet every week. Because of the way Explorer Scouts are organised members get the chance to try more activities by working with other Units.

- Gain the knowledge, skills and confidence required to become an effective Leader.
- Further their own personal development.
- Work towards other Awards for example The Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
- Acquire the skills that are needed for the Scouts Adult Training Scheme.
- Have Fun

The Explorer Scout Unit is primarily leader led, but with as much participation in decision making by young people as possible.

Young Leaders work with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Explorer Scouting is open to all young people aged 14 - 18. Places are automatically reserved for those Scouts who are members at 75th Scouts. But we welcome new member anytime! Please email our leader Shaun and he will answer any questions.

Suitable for ages 14 - 18 years.

Fees...

The cost of sending your child to Scouting will vary depending on your Group. It is likely to be between £50 and £100 a year and this may be collected weekly, monthly, each term or annually depending on local arrangements.

This fee covers the cost of the hire or upkeep of the meeting place and so on. Trips, camps and activities are usually charged separately.

To find out more information and/or register your child with the Group, please get in touch.
