What is Explorer Scouting?

Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family.

Not all Units meet each week, because you will often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities. There will be times when you will be busy doing other things such as exams, and being an Explorer Scout will have to fit around these.


As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your Unit organises.


  • You will also make an Explorer Scout promise.

  • Claygate has an active Explorer Scout Troop





Claygate Explorer Scouts are for boys and girls aged between 14-18 and they enjoy a wide range of activities both within Claygate and the district. They meet on Tuesday, 20:30 - 22:00
