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.
There are two Explorer Scout units in Kenilworth District that meet at Castle Farm:
Castle Lake ESU - who meet on a Wednesday 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
Phoenix ESU - who meet on a Thursday 7.30pm to 9.30pm.
There is also the option to be a Young Leader in a Beaver Scout Colony, Cub Scout Pack, or Scout Troop whilst still joining in with the Explorer Scout Programme whenever you want.
