Wythenshawe Explorer Scouts...

Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.

They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family. Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders’ Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections. There is wider-scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.
