Explorers belong to the fourth section of the scouting family and are easily recognised by their smart, beige shirts.

Explorer Scouts are typically young people aged between 14 and 18 and they often link from one of our Scout Troops, but you can still be an Explorer Scout without having first been in the Scouts.

There are many types of Explorer Scout Units, some may be linked to your local Scout Group. others may be based around different activities.

Not all units meet each week, because you will often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities.  There will be times when you are busy doing other things such as exams, and being an explore scout will have to fit in around these.

As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to meet with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit.  By doing this, you will get the chance to take part in activities that your Unit may not organise.

5th Dartford Scout Group has one Explorer Scout unit – the Johnston Explorers..

For further information on Explorer Scout activities, Please contact us via our Contact Us page.

Once Explorer Scouts reach 18 they will often progress to Scout Network – The 5th stage in Scouting.
