So what is there for you after Scouts?
Explorer Scouts is the Section above Scouts and is for those aged between 14 and 17 years old, though as with all of the other Sections in Scouting there is some flexibility to allow you to move on at a time that suits you, maybe so that you finish awards in Scouts, go to camp with the Troop a final time or move on at the same time as your friends in the Troop.
Bexleyheath Explorer Scout Unit meets on Monday nights and is fed by Scout Troops in Bexley District as well as other members who have previously been involved in Guiding or haven't been part of either movement previously.
If you are a Scout in Bexley then as you approach your 14th Birthday the District Explorer Scout Commissioner and Unit Leaders will be in touch with your Scout Leader and you to discuss when is a good time for you to move up from Scouts. They also try to invite the older Scouts in the District to a couple of events a year as a link into the Unit.
If you want further information about the Unit their latest programme is listed below and if you are interested in joining please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for further details or call the District Recruitment Line on 0845 094 6368
The Unit also has a group on Facebook with photos etc from recent events - please e-mail email@example.com if you want to join the ESU Facebook group as its set up so that to join is by invitation only.
