Bedfordshire Scouts

Explorers are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.


Structure and meetings

A group of Explorers is called a Unit.

Not all Units meet every week, partly due to activities, holidays, exams and the other commitments that crop up in a teenager's life, and also because Explorers tend to get out and about at weekends more often than other sections.


Activities

Explorers often get the chance to work with other Explorers in their District, not just their own Unit, so can take part in an even wider spectrum of activities.

There is also a range of ambitious badges and awards, through which Explorers can demonstrate their proficiencies and expand their interests.

Jamboree Leaders announced!
11/08/2021 By David Moult

Bedfordshire leaders selected!

 

Please welcome the Bedfordshire leaders for the 25th World Scout Jamboree to Korea in 2023

Amy, Chris, Greg & Nick!

 

 

For the last fortnight, a small dedicated team have been interviewing Bedfordshire leaders for the Jamboree in Korea 2023.

It's been difficult, as there has been many great applications, conducted both in person and over Zoom.

The process included having over half of our selection team being in their teens (keeping this #YouthShaped), all bar 1 having attended a World Scout Jamboree, a mix of adult leaders and roles within the County, as well as diverse group such as members of the LGBT+ community, for example.

 

Well done to all those applying and thanks to the selection team for doing a sterling job
