Welcome to the Discovery Explorer Scout Unit Website
This is the link to the Program
In 1967, Venture Scouting was formed to provide adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for young people, aged between 15 and 21 years old. Over 40 years on, that aim remains, however now catering for the 14 to 18 age range we are called Explorer Scouts!
Explorers is fun and exciting, you can meet new people and make new friends; learn new skills such as rafting, navigation and of course if you really wanted knot tying; it makes a useful break away from the day to day timetable of school and home.
Our Explorers ( there's over 80 of them!) have several different meeting nights during the week and you can attend as few or many as you wish as it is well understood that often young people have other commitments to work, school and home.
Each meeting night is filled with activities and games to entertain all ages and in the summer we truly take advantage of our Scout Base with rafting, canoeing, rowing and boating on a nearby lake and huge wide games.
In addition to the weekly meetings there are many opportunities throughout the year to attend camps, day walks, go rock climbing, mountaineering and do many other events.
The great thing about our Unit is that we the Explorers decide our own programs for the year and so if there is something you really want to try there is next to free reign to go ahead with it.
So take a look at our pictures and come along and try Explorer Scouting. I promise you, you'll never regret it!
