Explorer Scouts are usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family. There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to your local Scout Group.
As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your Unit organises.
Explorer Scouts also have the opportunity to work in younger sections as members of the Young Leader Scheme.
Explorers (14 - 18 years)
The cost of sending your teenager 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.
