What are Explorers?
Explorers is the fourth section in Scouting, and is for boys and girls aged 14 to 18. Explorers take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme, from archery to expeditions. There are many awards that Explorers can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Queens Scout Award. However, taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as an Explorer.
The balanced programme of activities encourages Explorers to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.
Being outdoors is really important and Explorers love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting. Explorers is about getting out and about and camping in all the months of the year, whatever the weather!
Explorers in scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

We all need someone who will believe in us. For some young people the pathway is full of obstacles and getting that first step on a ladder may seem impossible. You may already be on a good footing and need that extra polish to stand-out for university applications.
The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is for all young people who are willing to put the effort in and aged between 14 and 25.
“Bourne Explorers” already has a full programme of challenging activities planned out which will include teamwork, leadership, advanced first aid, hillwalking, camping and volunteering in the community.
Our DofE expeditions will be weekend hikes with a mix of campsite and wild-camping, and canoeing trips in the Countryside with wild-camping in the woods on the banks of rivers.
With us you will work hard, be challenged, make new friends and also have many fantastic life experiences. Spaces are available but expected to fill up.
