Welcome to the Gosport Viking Explorer Scouts

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.A group of Explorer Scouts is called a Unit.

In Gosport we are al memeber of One District Unit but have the opportunity to attend other meetings held by leaders in the District.  Explorer Scouting is activity based camping, hiking, archery, shooting and climbing plus loads of other activities.

Young Leaders' Scheme
The Young Leaders' Scheme is just one of the exciting program elements in the Explorer Scout section.

All Young Leaders in the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Section who are between the ages of 14 and 18 must be members of an Explorer Scout Young Leaders' Unit.

They are Explorer Scouts who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another section. 

The Young Leaders' Scheme helps Explorer Scouts to develop and grow as individuals. It allows them to make a valuable contribution to their community and give service to others. The scheme also helps them fulfil the service elements of their awards.

Explorer’s can not return to there previous Scout Troop as a Young Leader for at least 6 months.
