Questions & answers

How old do I have to be before I can join ?

The official age for explorers is 14 however. You can become an explorer scout from 13.5 years old. So if you have a group of friends who are either older or younger there is flexibility to allow you all to come up at the same time.

Which explorer unit do I have to attend ?

At present we have two units Kilderkins and Firkins which meet on a Tuesday and Wednesday. You are not tied to going to one unit or the other just whichever unit suits you best.

I've not been in scouting before, can I bring a friend ?

Of course you can, scouting is open to all. If you would like to bring a friend that's ok, not a problem, they will be required to provide the usual contact details and an emergency contact when they first arrive.

Where do I go after explorers ?

After you turn 18 you will be too old for explorers and will move onto network, which is for between 18 - 25 year olds. You can also become a fully qualified leader after training for your wood beads and then play an active role in scouting as an adult
