The Explorer Section has an age range of 14 – 17 years old.
Explorers do a wide range of things but by this age range, the emphasis has changed to allow them to play a big part in deciding what they want to do as a unit. There are no real limits to what can be done – we regularly go camping, do day visits, and even just chill out together round a camp fire!
Our Explorer Section meets on a Thursday 20.15 – 21.15 during term time where we are offering the Duke of Edinburgh awards as well as working towards the top awards in Scouting leading to the Queen Scout’s award.
Many of our Explorers are also Young Leaders with the group where they are completing their Young Leader training and counts towards the volunteering for the D of E award.
The explorers are also helping the Somerset Wildlife Trust at Great Breech Wood as part of their community work as well as attending the International Jamboree Jurassic at Kingston Maurward College in the Summer.
