Explorer Sea Scouts

Who Are We?

Explorers is for 13.5-18 year olds with an interest in Scouting and boats - You can be a beginner or a pro we don't mind. The images on the right give you an idea of the sorts of things we get up to.

What do you get up to in winter?

Our winter programme is varied but includes rock climbing, pioneering (building stuff), talks from interesting people, team games, hikes and much more.

What do you do in the summer?

During the summer you will mostly find us on the river. We canoe, kayak, row, sail or powerboat on the river, with trips up river to the weir, a little rafting, or some paddle boarding thrown in on the side.

Camps and Events

As part of our Easter weekend in 2017, we sailed a yacht around the Isle of Wight, RIBbed to Cowes for dinner, returning in the dark, and sailed dinghies to the Isle of Wight. We usually do a one week camp in the summer and have done everything from surfing in Devon to the Swiss Alps.


What uniform do I need?

How do I get involved?

It's rare that we have a waiting list for this section, so pop down on a Wednesday at 7pm and talk to one of our friendly team. You can also contact us here.
