‘To anyone who hasn’t tried Scouting before, I’d say come on up and have a go! I think that most people don’t really know that Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I’ve been in the Movement since I was a Beaver and I still love it!’

At Quay Explorers we encourage Explorers to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers. With exciting prospects like being a part of camps and expeditions both home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering and offshore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all. Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections.

The key to running a successful Explorer Unit is flexibility, as we understand that there are other commitments that crop up in a teenager’s life, such as holidays and exams, we, therefore, plan the programme to reflect this.

The unit meets on Friday evenings during, times vary with the programme. If you are interested in joining please use the form below.
