Explorer Scouting is available to 14-18 year olds in ‘Units’ hosted by a Scout Group within a Scout District and giving lots of opportunities for adventurous activities and challenges, and to gain the Duke of Edinburgh Awards as well as the prestigious Chief Scout’s and Queen Scout Awards. "Flexible" is what best describes this section.
 
Emphasis is on being able to provide activities for all interests and fit Scouting around those all important school and college exams.
