Get ready to

make your mark

Explorer Scouts are always on the go! You’ll find there’s always something to get involved with whether it’s an international expedition, adventure camp or community project. Explorer Scouts have the opportunity to take on CV-boosting accolades, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award or our own Queen’s Scout Award, and can develop leadership skills through the Young Leader Scheme.

Scouting has changed me as a person. Through travelling with Scouting, I’ve seen how others live and it has given me a passion for making a difference in the world.
