Explorer scouts enjoy a challenging programme of activities

What's It All About?
Explorers is for 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.

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

3rd Washington runs an active, challenging and exciting programme every Tuesday night as well as having regular weekend activities and camping throughout the year.

Explorers have the opportunity to participate in events ran by Houghton-Le-Spring District, including an annual international adventure.
