Explorer Units

As we continue to grow at a fantastic pace, we are now lucky in Lichfield to be able to offer 7 options for Explorer Scouts forming our District Explorer Provision to continue in their Scouting journey. We have 6 Active Explorer Units within the District offering similar adventurous programmes and a Young Leaders 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 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. This is up to the discretion of the Scout Leader and Assistant Leaders.

Lichfield District Young Leaders

Young Leaders Contact: YLTeam@LichfieldScouts.org.uk

This is a virtual Unit which encompass all Explorers registered as Young Leaders throughout the Active Explorer Units and those not registered with another Unit.  Many of our Explorers work with groups and the younger sections learning to lead and pass on knowledge and skills. The virtual Young Leaders Unit provides training and opportunities for the Young Leaders to enable them to complete this role.

The District have a fantastic training scheme which sits alongside Country Young Leader Training Weekends so fully prepare you for being a Young Leader (and get you an amazing award for all your hard work!)
