Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18.
Explorers can gain a wide range of badges and awards, particularly activity badges. These can range from canoeing and mountain biking to street sports and even public relations.
A unique part of being an Explorer Scout is the chance to become a Young Leader in the Beaver, Cub and Scout Sections.
Young people can stay in the Explorer Scout Section until the age of 18 before moving on to the Scout Network.
