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.

Our explorer sea scouts undertake a more advanced and challenging version of the sea scout programme; whether it be working towards recognised sailing qualifications, lighting fires using a fire bow rather than flint and steel or designing and creating an orienteering course in addition to undertaking orienteering.
