Loddon District Explorers

explorers2015

Monday, Wednesday and Friday Evenings

Explorers are young people, boys and girls usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Right from the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue with Scouts, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.  During the late 1990s it was decided by The Scout Association that there would be two sections for the over-14’s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25’s.

1st Wargrave Scouts is a feeder troop for Loddon District Scouts Explorers.  At age 14, and before Scouts move up to Explorers, we invite the Scouts to meet the Explorer Section Leaders and experience a taster session.

Loddon District Explorers meet weekly on either a Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening at Paddicks Patch our District HQ, in Woodley.

There is a broad range of ambitious badges and awards through which Explorers can learn and demonstrate proficiencies and expand their interests, including The Queen’s Scout Award and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
