Explorer Scouts…

Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.

There is flexibility in the age range: young people can join from age 13½ but cannot move to Network until 18. Young people must have left the Explorer Scout section before the date of their 18th birthday.

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 should be 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.

The District has three Explorer Scout Units…

  • Bay Panthers ESU meet at Bayden (Grangetown) on Friday’s between 7.30-9.00pm.
  • Celts ESU meet at 1st Creigiau Scout Hall on Thursday’s between 7.45-9.45pm.
  • Phoenix ESU meet at Scoutbase (Pontcanna) on Tuesday’s between 7.30-9.00pm.

Young Leaders’ Scheme

The Young Leaders’ Scheme is just one of the exciting programme elements in the Explorer Scout section. All leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Section who are between the ages of 14 and 18 must be members of an Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Unit. They are Explorer Scouts who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another section.

The Young Leaders’ Scheme helps Explorer Scouts to develop and grow as individuals. It allows them to make a valuable contribution to their community and give service to others. The scheme also helps them fulfil the service elements of their awards.
