Explorers is for the older Scouts aged between 14 & 18, who like to do more adventurous activities than Scouts. Explorers are expected to organise themselves with support from the Leaders rather than being lead by the Leaders. A lot of the Explorers help out as Young Leaders with the other sections of the Group.
What Have We Been Up To?
December started with our Explorers helping our Scout Troop with their Community Challenge Night. They organised a hike for the other Explorers from across the District to attend where they walked from Hoo to Cobham and stayed overnight in Cobham Church before they had the chance to go ice skating at the Silver Blades ice rink in Gillingham. The last meeting of the month was the annual Christmas party, the Explorers helped the Group raise funds by bag packing at Tesco. After Christmas our Explorers went to see Disney on Ice at Wembley Arena.
Our Explorers began the New Year with a Japanese themed night where they made traditional Japanese fish kites in preparation for one of their number going to Japan for the World Jamboree later in the year. They also joined the Scouts on a night hike around the Peninsular.
