About Us

Ormskirk & District Explorers is the 14-18 year old Scouting provision within our district.  We consists of seven ‘units’ that meet weekly in location throughout the district.  Within the section we have around 150 Young People.

We also have Young Leaders which are Explorers (14-18 year old Scouts) that volunteer within the any of the 21 groups (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) within our district.  The Explorer section provide these Young Leaders with training and support, we also provide opportunities for Young Leaders to partake in the annual district programme, if they wish.  For more information on Young Leaders please click on the above ‘Young Leaders’ tab.

Each of the Explorer Scout Units (ESU) below are ran by a Explorer Scout Leader (ESL) and usually at least one Assistant Explorer Scout Leader (AESL).  If you are interested in joining one of your Explorer Scout Units as a young person or adult volunteer please do not hesitate to contact Andrew King on desc@ormskirkscouts.org.uk.
