From Our GSL
The Milton Phoenix Explorer Scout Unit (ESU) is the final step in scouting before moving on to becoming a leader or going onto Network at district level. The age range for the Unit is 14 to 18 years old.
As a unit we meet on a Monday night between 7 and 9 at the HQ. We often run activities out and about in the local area and camps a bit further afield. As an ESU we focus on you and what you want to do within scouting, this can be climbing one week to fires and craft the next. The activities are varied and inclusive to all.
We also operate DofE opportunities within the unit. We currently have many members working on different levels of the award. This also helps our young people to achieve their scouting equivalent awards such as, Chief Scouts Platinum, Chief Scouts Diamond, and Queens Scout Award.
We also give the young people chances to become young leaders to ready themselves to become either a leader within scouting when they turn 18 or to just improve on their leadership skills for use within the world of work.
As an explorer we push you to succeed in all you do, allowing you to become a well-rounded individual.
