From the age of 14, young people can expect to take an increasing role in the planning and management of their Scouting Activities. They may join one or more Explorer Scout Units, which are organised at District level and all local Explorer Scouts wear a distinctive blue and orange scarf.
The Peppers Explorer Unit is based at Pepperpots and has an agreement to use 3W Group facilities in exchange for supporting the activities of our Sections. The Unit meets most Thursday evenings at Pepperpots, although its activities determine exactly when and where it operates. The Unit is open to young men and women from the ages of 14 to 17. You do not need to have been in Scouts to join an Explorer Unit. Parental approval is required to join and we expect parents to give support to the Unit and the Group.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
