Explorer Scouts (14–18)

Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.

There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.

The Explorer Section is not a part of the Lockerbie Scout group but is run by Liz shepherd and James Dalziel. Several members are from in and around Lockerbie and have passed through beavers, cubs and scouts with us. The young leader team are part of the explorer group and help with some of our sections.
