Explorers are aged between 14 and 18 and are the forth section in Scouting after scouts and before Scout Network
There are 3 units in Slough:
Discovery ESU (DESU) – which meet on Monday nights at 3rd Upton HQ between 7:30pm – 9:30pm
Resolution ESU (RESU) – which meet on Wednesday nights at 1st Britwell HQ between 8pm – 10pm
Young Leader ESU (YL) – where members help and learn leadership skills with groups around the district (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts).
The programme for each unit is different and open to all: you can attend Monday and/or Wednesday meetings, to suit your schedule and interests, at no extra cost (unless the activity itself requires it). Some Explorers regularly attend both. Like wise, any Explorer can also be a Young Leader and volunteer with a group on another night of the week. If you would like to know more about the Young Leaders scheme please ask and we will introduce you to the YL team leaders.

We also offer the Duke of Edinburgh scheme along side the Scout award scheme, where you can achieve awards. If you are interested in joining this scheme please talk to one of the Leader Team for the application form.
