Welcome to Explorers
Explorers is a whole new level of scouting, the challenges are more intense, but there is also more fun to be had! Explorers offers a larger range of activities and builds on the foundations each section before offered. Explorers is closely followed in conjunction with The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
A small representation of the activities we take part in are as follows:
- Laser Quest
Explorers also have the opportunity to take part in Residential experiences either as part of Scouts or through their DofE scheme. Although being an Explorer is extremely exciting and full of adventure, we do also take part in the traditional scouting activities such as firelighting, knot tying and general 'survival'/ handy skills.
Explorers is a part of 'District' which means, although it is still part of 1st Rye Scout Group, it also has it's own identity as 'Captain Cory's Own' Explorer group and is one of 4 in the District. What this also means is that, on occasion, we may group up and take part in activities with the other Explorer groups in Hastings which offers a larger opportunity to make friends and also for larger games and activities.
