Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18.
Explorers can gain a wide range of badges and awards, particularly activity badges. These can range from canoeing and mountain biking to street sports and even public relations.
In Scotland, Explorer Scout Units are based at District level. Some Units may be linked to a local Scout Group.
Explorer Scout Units will often link up with other Units from their District to take part in a whole range of activities.
A unique part of being an Explorer Scout is the chance to become a Young Leader in the Beaver, Cub and Scout Sections.
We currently have Explorer Units in Markinch, South Parks and Collydean.
