What's It All About?

Explorer programme is aimed at young people aged 14 to 18 years old. Explorers is the next step on the scouting journey following the scout section and aims to build on the skills developed as a scout. We also have young people join us who have had no previous scouting experience.

Young people in the explorer unit have the opportunity to influence the programme of their unit and often take the lead in organising their own activities across the year.

1st Fatfield runs an active, challenging and exciting programme every Tuesday night as well as having regular weekend activities and camping throughout the year, often joining with our Scout Troops.

Explorers also have the opportunity to participate in events ran by Houghton-Le-Spring District, including an annual international adventure, meeting up with and building friendships with other young people in their age group.

Also Explorers may become a Young Leader within the group taking advantage of the Young Leaders training offered by our District.
