Explorer Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
The Explorer programme is often supplemented and complemented by events and activities delivered across the District, allowing them the opportunity to socialise and work with other local Explorer Units.
In addition, there are a number of activity badges and ambitious top awards that Explorer Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements. Explorers commonly work towards achieving their DofE and Queen Scout awards.
Explorer units meet at various locations across the District and opportunities are available for young people who not only live in Loughborough, but also those from Castle Donington, Kegworth, Belton, Diseworth, Hathern, Long Whatton and Shepshed and surrounding villages.
