Who are Mid Sussex District Explorer Scouts?


Explorer Scouts are the active go-getting section made up of 14 to 18 year olds, who make up the fifth section of Scouts. Mid Sussex has 5 active Units plus a Young Leaders Unit who meet weekly across the district, to challenge themselves, try new things, make new friends and explore the world head-on.




What do Explorers get up to?

Explorers influence their unit’s programme of what they do, they are encouraged to stand up for what they believe in and grow into knowledgeable young people of society. This is all part of the journey while out and about camping, doing water-based activities, hiking, dry slope skiing, community impact projects and much much more, also international adventures. Explorers have previously been to Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, Uganda and USA Explorers also get the chance to work towards their Platinum & Diamond Chief Scout Awards, their Queens Scout Award, along with the chance of being a Young Leader within younger sections and the chance to work towards The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (Bronze, Silver and Gold)
