In 2015, Adventures Offshore, a tall ship charity owned by the scout association will be sending 2 yachts on a round britain adventure. A number of our explorer scouts will be taking part in one of the legs , from Ipswich to Edinburgh , calling in at Newcastle, and including overnight sailing on Offshore Scout and Ocean Scout this promises to be a great adventure - good luck to those taking part!
As well as offering all of the scout award, which in explorers are the diamond , platinum and Queens Scouts award, we are also a recognised DofE award centre
Explorers can sign up do do their DofE awards from the age of 14.
We are running a DofE silver Expedition in the Cheviot Hills, Northumberland at the end of October - this is a 3 day (2 night) expedition and camping in wild country.
All explorers taking part are reminded that they need to attend every week to complete the planning.
