Aged 13.5 to 18 and want to explore the great outdoors? We currently have spaces to join Explorer Scouts in Crawley.
Alongside your new friends, you’ll master new life skills and try things you’d never get the chance to do at home or school such as raft building, kayaking, climbing, rifle shooting, mountaineering, or overseas expeditions. You will also have the freedom to choose activities you would like to do including completing your Duke of Edinburgh awards.
Explorer Scouts expand on and develop important life skills that will set them apart from the crowd as they enter adulthood and face the challenges that come along with it. These important character skills include:
• The ability to work as part of a team
• Leadership skills
• Problem-solving skills
• Communication skills
• A sense of responsibility
Explorer Scouts can also undertake the young leader’s scheme which counts as the “service” element of your Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Young Leaders’ Scheme helps Explorer Scouts develop their leadership and communication skills. As a Young Leader, Explorer Scouts will volunteer to help run a Beaver, Cub or Scout section. They will work with the Leader to plan the section’s Programme, run activities and share their Scouting skills with younger Scouts.
Adult Volunteers (18+)
Scouting is for adults too! We believe in flexible volunteering and offer a number of adult volunteering roles that suit a range of skills.
We want all young people to have the chance to dream big, give it a go, and build skills for life. But it’s not just the young people who benefit from Scouts. Volunteering is good for boosting your wellbeing, developing CV-friendly skills, making friends and building memories.
Whether you want to support young people or if you’re more comfortable planning an adventure from the sidelines, we’ve got space for you. Get in touch today by clicking here
