Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
Not all Units meet every week, partly due to activities, holidays, exams and the other commitments that crop up in a teenager's life, and also because Explorers tend to get out and about at weekends more often than other sections.
If you are interested in joining Explorer Scouts as either a Explorer or an adult helper, please contact us and the DESC (District Explorer Scout Commissioner) will contact you with the information that you need to know.
We have Explorer Scout Units that cover Sandiacre, Breaston, Draycott & Wilne, Sawley and various areas of Long Eaton such as College Street, Tamworth Road & Trent College. We all usually meet during term time. All Leaders have undergone training and are continually assessed. All Leaders meet about three times a year and we can keep in touch with what his happening in the District.
