Everyone loves a bit of adventure, we all know that. Explorers offers everything from abseiling to zorbing, so if you’re 14-18 and you’re an adventure seeker (that’s pretty much everyone) then explorers is definitely for you!

How does it work?

Explorer Scouts are part of something bigger than a scout group. Explorer Scouts are part of a team of people stretching across Hetton, Houghton and Washington. This is known as the district. No matter what you do or where you come from within scouting, when you're an explorer, you're part of this huge team of people all pursuing fun, challenge and adventure.

In the district, we have two explorer units. You can read more about the explorer units here.
