What is Explorers all about?
The Explorer Scout Section was formed in 2002 along with the Scout Network (for 18 – 25 yr olds) to replace Venture Scouting. Since its launch Explorer Scouting has taken off and has over 30,000 Members in 2,000 Units across the UK.
Explorer Scouts is open to young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.
When do we meet?
We meet on Fridays from 7:15pm – 9:00pm
If you are interested or know someone who might be interested in joining us then please contact us for more information.
What do we wear?
Explorers are expected to wear an official shirt and neckerchiefs at every session.
For parades, such as St George’s Day and Remembrance Day, full uniform with black trousers and black shoes is required.
Uniform can be purchased from the Scout Shop, based at Murray Hall in Tuffley, or alternatively it can be purchased from the School Shop in Gloucester Town (please note that each shop works independently so items cannot be exchanged between them). Neckerchiefs can only be bought from the Scout Shop or online and not from the School Uniform Shop.
The diagram below indicates where each of the badges an Explorer may have should be sewn onto their shirt.
