Ages: 14 - 18
Any one aged between 13½ & 18 can be an Explorer Scout.
In Loughborough District* we currently meet on Mondays from 7.15pm - 9.15pm at Loughborough Grammar School Scout HQ.
*Loughborough District is around 250 square km and encompasses Loughborough, Shepshed, Oaks in Charnwood, Hathern, Long Whatton, Belton, Diseworth, Kegworth and Castle Donington.
Explorer Scouts are young people, 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, others may be based around different activities.
Not all Units meet each week, because you will often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities. There will be times when you will be busy doing other things such as exams, and being an Explorer Scout will have to fit around these.
