Explorers Explorer Scouting in St Albans Explorers is the Scouting section for 14-18 year olds. Unlike Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts which are run by Groups, Explorers is run at a District Level. All Young Leaders who help with other sections are automatically members of Explorer Scouting in St Albans. Explorers take part in more adventurous activities, and get much more involved in the running of the unit; contributing programme ideas, and organising camps. Whilst in Explorers you can work towards the Chief Scout’s Diamond and Platinum Awards as well as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award if you are not doing this through your school. Explorers is an opportunity to make new friends, to take part in activities you may not have tried before, and to further develop your scouting skills. And when you turn 18 you can join the Scout Network! We are currently looking at developing of Scout Explorer Unit and will update this section as soon as we are ready.
