The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations.
Explorers Scouts are young people who like excitement, adventure, and challenge. They are aged between 14 to 18 and make up the fifth section of the Scouting, after Squirrels' Beavers' Cubs and Scouts. Being an Explorer is always fun; there is an amazing range of activities you can get involved in, an extensive programme of challenges to face, and no shortage of rewards if you show commitment and initiative. To anyone who hasn’t tried Scouting before, I’d say come on up and have a go! Some of our most committed Explorers have come from a non-scouting background before joining us.
As an Explorer Scout, you'll be expected to attend the regular meetings. You'll often have the opportunity to go away at weekends, take part in outdoor activities or meet with Explorers from other parts of Sutton Coldfield. In the video above, are some typical activities you might do as a Hudson Explorer Scout.
We offer The Duke of Edinburgh's Award, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.
When the time comes to move up to Explorers, a young person can have mixed feelings: excitement at moving on, sadness at leaving friends behind. Making the transition as smooth as possible goes a long way to helping your child settle in.
You should get in touch with us saying what group you have come from, it's important to be aware that meeting times and places may be different than your current section.
If your child has friends in their section that they want to move up with, make sure that their Scout leader knows about this so that they can help if possible. This could also be a good opportunity to arrange sharing transport to and from meetings.
Explorer Scouting gives you an invaluable opportunity to find out what you want to, and could do, in life. It equips you with important life skills which are not easily acquires elsewhere, as well as a lifelong network of friends.
Join us! We don't have a waiting list, and hopefully never will, waiting list are not something to be proud of. Explorers take much more control of their own programme and the requirements on adult to child ratios aren't as demanding.
Join Hudson Explorer Scout Unit on Thursday.
