It doesn’t end with Scouts! Explorers are the fourth section of the Scouting family for teenagers between 14 and 18. Because they are likely to have a more varied social life and will likely be mixing with others from a wider area, Explorer units are generally associated with districts rather than local groups. Mixing with other groups provides access to a wider programme of activities but also allows for a more flexible programme which can fit around other commitments.
Our group is part of the Mid-Cheshire district which has three Explorer units based in Hartford, Weaverham and Winsford
