Explorers are 14–18 years old.
Explorer Scouts are provided by Oxford Spires District and they determine where units meet. We are lucky that we have had Falcon Explorers meeting at our Group ever since Explorers started 20+ years ago.
Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme
and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.
There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.
As an Explorer Scout, in Oxford Spires you have a home unit and you can also attend any of the other unit meetings that week as they all do different activities. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more actvities, not just the ones your unit organises and be able to achieve the Chief Scout’s Awards to celebrate your development as an Explorer Scout.
