Explorers - 14 to 18 years

Try more. See more. Do more. At Explorers, you’ll stand on your own two feet, and make memories to last a lifetime

What Explorers wear

Once they’ve had time to settle in to the group, Explorers get their own set of uniform to wear during meetings and on trips away. Usually, this consists of a beige shirt or blouse with their badges sewn on, which they pair with their Unit scarf – if they’re an independent Unit - or Group scarf, if their Unit is merged with a Scout Troop. This will vary slightly if your Explorer Unit is part of the Air Scouts or Sea Scouts. See below for uniform diagrams.

Alongside their shirts, Explorers might wear the accompanying blue uniform trousers or skirt, or they might save their uniform bottoms to wear for special occasions like awards ceremonies and public events – choosing to wear something more casual with their shirt during the week.   Optional accessories such as hats, hoodies, are also available.

Where you buy your uniform

Uniform can  be bought from a local supplier. If you’re not sure where to start, or could use a little help with uniform costs, fear not. Your Explorer leader can chat to you about options. The most important thing when you first arrive is wearing something that you feel natural and comfortable in.

Who are Explorers?
