The Scout section for 14 - 18 Year olds is Explorers. Explorers taking scouting one step further, taking part in more adventurous and exciting activities than in the previous sections.

Within our District you can choose which Explorer Unit you wish to be part of. We have the Viking Unit located in Cramlington and the Spartan Unit in Blyth. The units do join together to take part in big activity's and camps, but run separate unit meeting nights.

Joining Explorer Scouts means you can take part in some or all of what we offer; a challenging programme, outdoor based adventures, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award,The Queen’s Scout Award or Young Leader Training. 

Explorer scouting is flexible and fits in around school, college and work commitments and your life!

As mentioned earlier part of the Explorers Programme is the Young Leader Scheme which allows Explorers to go into a Scout Group and act as a 'Young Leader' within a younger section. There is also a training scheme that runs alongside, allowing various modules to be completed to achieve the Young Leader Belt.
