Our Explorer Scout Unit

Castle Hill Explorers are aged between 14-18 and meet last Thursday of every month between 7:30 and 9:15 during term time.

One of four geographically based units in Suffolk providing big adventure to young people. It is our belief that at the age of 14 most young people know what they want so they have a big say on what we do with our programme.

Explorers Scouts can earn awards that are recognised by universities and employers. These are the Chief Scout’s Platinum, Diamond and the Queen’s Scout Awards, and the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards.

Also Explorers can train as Young Leaders, working alongside experienced adults, learning how to run activities for young people aged 6 to 14.
