What do explorers do?

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 –¬†they regularly go camping, do day visits, and even just chill out together round a camp fire!

Explorer Scouts write their own programme and the leaders facilitate the activities that their unit has chosen.

Most of their communication is between the Explorers via a closed facebook page, rather than leaders emailing parents.
