Boy Explorers: 14 – 18 years


7th Goodmayes have just recently started this section and there are exciting challenges awaiting our Explorers! Next year we will be participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme. Explorers 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. Sessions are alternate Fridays 7.15-9.15pm
