    Subs are due 3 times a year, in September, January and April.

    Yes we do! We are part of Hexnet, the Hallam District Explorers and Network group that helps members achieve their Chief Scout's Awards and Queen's Scout Award, and along the way they also earn their DofE awards too. Each school year we advertise taking on a new cohort. You can find out more here:
  • Do you supply the uniform and necker?
    To be invested we require you to purchase an Explorer Scout uniform shirt. Once you have been invested, we will supply you with a necker, badges and green unit polo shirt.
  • When can I be invested into the group?
    We allow members a 2 week trial to see if Explorers is for them, and then we will add you to our subs payments. Once you purchase an Explorer shirt and pay your first subs payment we will invest you into the group.
