Our Explorers are an affiliated group called Phoenix they enjoy an active and varied programme. Which was designed to be relevant to today’s young people. It keeps it exciting and full of traditional Explorer Scout themes.
Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the Unit’s programme. This is done with guidance and support from the leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme. This scheme allows young people to take on a leadership role in a younger section. It also provides leader training for them.
There is wider scope for activities like climbing, sailing, campaigning, performing, mountaineering. We also do expeditions including the international Explorer Belt, D of E and Jamborees. Our activities form part of our challenge badges and awards. We work towards the Chief Scout’s Diamond and Platinum awards, as well as the Bronze, Silver and Gold D of E awards.
At St Cuthbert’s Scouts, Explorers meet on Friday evenings 7:30 until 9:15pm.
