I am pleased to say that we have shown good growth in the recent census especially in the Explorer and Young Leader Units where we now total over 109 young people.
With Growth in all sections including Scouts, we now need to look at opening a new Explorer Unit in the central Stirling area in order to provide opportunities and capacity for Scouts moving to Explorers. Whilst we haven't finalised details as to location and timings we know that we need to open a unit soon.
If you are not familiar with what an Explorer Unit is then this may help you understand and decide if you would like to be involved
A group of Explorer Scouts is called a Unit and is part of the District’s provision of Scouting. The key to running a successful Explorer Unit is flexibility.
With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers. With exciting prospects like being a part of camps and expeditions both home and abroad; adventurous activities such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all.
