Southampton City Explorers

Start Exploring

Joining Explorers is a real milestone for the Young People involved in Scouting. Joining this section means moving on from the group that they can participate as a Beavers, Cubs or Scout and instead join something a little bit bigger. When you start as an Explorer Scout you’ll receive a new Explorer neckerchief to signify this change and link you to 100+ Explorers from all over the city. Our programme is designed to give you #SkillsForLife with a variety of activities provided for our Young People.
