Try more. See more. Do more. At Explorers you'll get the chance to dream big, find your place in the world and make memories to last a lifetime.

Explorers are a go-getting group of young people aged 14 to 18. Together, they make up the fifth section of the Scouts.

Week in and week out, they gather in groups called Units to try new things, make new friends and conquer the small task of changing the world.
