The Explorer section is for young people aged from 14 - 18 years old. Scouts meet together as a Unit.


Our Unit is part of the Explorer Scout District (Tunbridge Wells), and as such are distinguished by wearing the District rather than the Pembury Group scarf.   


With the support, direction and guidance of our unit leader, 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; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all. Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The Explorer Scout Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections.



Our Purple Piranha Explorer Unit is run by Sharon Melville and meets on Wednesday evenings 19:00 to 20:30
