Let’s face it. By the age of 14, most young people know what they want. Explorer Scouts 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.

The Eagles Explorer Scout Unit meets on Tuesday evenings. They are run as an autonomous unit from 1st Woosehill.
