Oak Eagle Explorer Scout Unit is the district Explorer unit for Letchworth Baldock and Ashwell. We meet on Monday evenings and are based at district HQ in Icknield Way, Letchworth Garden City.
As you move up the Scouting sections, the activities and challenges grow and Explorers is the next step up from Scouts for those aged 14 to 18 years old. Our programme has lots of outdoor activities including walking, sailing, climbing, kayaking, biking…… Anything that is fun and we are happy to give it a go.
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. Young leaders are a vital part of our district.
We work on badges and challenge awards and also DofE.
All Explorers will work towards their Chief Scout Platinum and Diamond Award and with regular attendance to meetings, days out and camps they should achieve this.
Explorers will also have an opportunity to work on towards their King’s Scout Award.
