Although managed as a separate Group, 118th Derby is pleased to provide a home base and contact information for the Polaris Explorers.
When you join Explorers, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
Activities and what you’ll get up to
With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, you’ll be encouraged to lead yourselves, design your 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.
Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme
ESYLs are Explorer Scouts who volunteer alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Colony, Cub Pack or Scout Troop.
Moving to Network
Eventually, it’ll be time embrace your next big adventure.
All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Explorers the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
