Explorer Scouts are aged 14 to 18. Our Explorers meet on a Thursday between 7.00pm and 9.00pm, rotating between meeting at our HQ, and getting out and about!
About Explorer Scouts
Explorer Scouts make up the fourth Section of the Throntons scouting family. Explorer Scouting is intended to give young people the chance to plan their own activities and events, along with the flexibility to continue Scouting within their busy lives, whether it be coursework or work commitments. During their time as an Explorer Scout at the young people will have the opportunity to take part in regular camps, sometimes abroad, hiking, extreme sports, along with other age appropriate activities.
A number of our Explorers are taking the opportunity to train as Young Leaders by helping out in one of our younger member sections, putting time and effort back into the system which has helped them to develop.
