Explorer Scouts (14-18)

Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old.

They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family and in Bath are District based and run.
Explorers enjoy an active programme enjoying a wide range of activities and experiences.

They are often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities. There will be times when an Explorer will be busy doing other things such as exams, and being an Explorer Scout will fit around these times.

As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your Unit organises.

Bath has one Explorer Unit; Blaze ESU, based in the city centre.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
