Explorers are for young people aged 14-18. We are over 100 strong. We are also growing fast because we run ourselves; because we are all great friends; and because we get up to all sorts of exciting adventurous activities and volunteering.

You can choose between 4 Units that meet on different nights through the week, term time. Come and try us out!

Unlike Beavers, Cubs and Scouts who are part of Scout Groups, we are organised differently into Units that are part of District Scouts. We meet weekly during term time and take part in an exciting programme devised by you as one of our Unit members. But we also bind together for activities, projects & expeditions.

You don't have to have previously been a Scout from one of Winchester's Scout Troops. You may have friends at school who have had a great time in Scouts and want to join them do the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. You might also decide to help volunteer as one of our Young Leaders in the 50 Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs or Scout Troops across Winchester.

For the past two summers we have spent 2 weeks in Kandersteg in Switzerland at the Scout International Centre with 1,400 other Scouts from all over the world. We went on glaciers, white water rapids, canyoning, climbing and more. It is incredible. You will never have done anything so awesome before!
