Explorer Scouts is the fourth section of the Scouting Movement and is open to all 14 to 18 year olds. Explorers is not like the earlier three sections of the scout movement as it is run on a District level rather than by a group. This allows our programme to be more flexible to meet the needs of our explorers.

We are lucky in Lichfield to be able to offer 7 options for Scouts forming our District Explorer Provision to continue in their Scouting journey. We have 6 Explorer Units within the District with units offering similar balance programmes and adventurous activities and 1 Young leader unit offering the formal training support for all Young Leaders throughout the District.  All will have their own individual style but the quality is the same.  Weekend activities run for Explorers are open to members in all 6 Activity units across the District.

Scouts can move to Explorers any time between the ages of 13½ – 14½ when the time is right for them as an individual.
