Blacksheep Explorer Scout Unit
The Explorer Scouts are 14-17 year old boys and girls who meet at St Chad’s Parish Centre on Wednesday evenings from 7.45 to 9.15pm during school term times. As the oldest section within Scouts, we have a mixed programme of indoor and outdoor activities. Many Explorers have attended Scouts for several years and use their Scouting skills to join in camps and expeditions throughout the year, often with other Explorers from across North Leeds. People who have never been to Scouts are also made very welcome and really enjoy the relaxed, sometimes very boisterous, atmosphere at the Blacksheep meetings! Many of the Explorers wish to do their Duke of Edinburgh Award through the Scouting Association and we are happy to supervise them in organising their expeditions for the Award. We have organised Bronze and Silver expeditions for many years and are supervising our first Gold Award expedition in 2017.
Currently we have about 15 Explorers in the Blacksheep Unit. If you are interested in joining us, please contact our Leader Lesley Connor on 07765 245847 or firstname.lastname@example.org
