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!


Explorers aged 14-18 years old take adventure to the next level from Scouts. Cabot Explorers provide a huge range of activities including diving, hiking, canoeing, mountain biking and we also offer young leader training programme (see below), Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the opportunity to take part in Ten Tors.

Young Leaders Programme

The unique element of Explorer Scouting is the chance to be a Young Leader, supporting our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts around the District. All Young Leaders are members of Cabot Young Leader's Unit, many are also members of a local Explorer Unit. We offer a hands on training and support program for these valuable member of the teams. There are regular training which cover everything a Young Leaders needs to know about helping out, these training sessions can also be helpful for D of E, CV or UCAS application.  More about the young leaders scheme training modules.

Moving On

When Explorers get to 18 years old, they move up to Scout Network where the fun and adventure continues.

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.
