Teenagers under 18

Teenagers under 18 can either join Explorer Scout Unit and have great time or become a young leader and get the invaluable experience of helping lead activities in the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.  Or both!

Right from the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.

During the late 1990s we decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should be two sections for the over-14s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.
