Explorer Scouts

Do more. Share more. Be more.

We are proud to be the fourth section of the Scout family for young people aged 14-18. Avon currently hosts over 1200 Explorer Scouts in over 54 units who have gained some incredible life-shaping experiences through scouting. We are also proud to host an evolving Young Leader scheme. By following an inclusive and youth-led programme, Explorers are encouraged to challenge themselves, do their best and be themselves through an exciting time of their lives.
