Welcome to Explorers
Our LOST ESU is the 5th section of the Scouting journey
Everything you need to know about Explorers should be right here. Take a look around!
All our volunteer leaders are fully trained, have a current DBS, regularly refresh safeguarding and safety knowledge and hold a First Aid qualification. Find out more about our safeguarding procedures here.
Explorer Scouts are young people aged 14 to 18 who:
- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond
Every week, they gather in groups called Scout Troops to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, and having lots of fun along the way.

We know everyone has a skill, hobby or interest we can use at Scouts and anytime you can offer to help out is awesome. You can volunteer as little or as much as you like, we’re super flexible.
Speak to one of the leaders about the different tasks we need support with at each meeting. If you could help us out once or twice a term, it’ll make a big difference.
