A bit about Explorers…

The Explorer section is the fourth section of our Group . The section is open to both boys and girls between the ages of 14-18 years. At LOST Explorers, meetings are held for two hours on a Wednesday night

The Unit is made up of young members who have moved up from the Scout Troop or those who would have joined Scouting for the first time. Explorers is fun and adventurous and a great place for friendships to be made.

At Explorers, the focus is on fun, socialising and the opportunity to learn skills that the young people might not pick up elsewhere. Explorers are also expected to develop their leadership skills and help with the running of the Unit.

The Explorers, as the Scouts and adults in Scouting, follow the Scout law.
