Explorers is the last stage of Scouting before adulthood, in light of this, most communication will be with the Explorers themselves and we expect them to be responsible young adults.
They will often be remotely supervised and have minimal contact with leaders. We expect that they rise to this and behave appropriately.
Should the Explorers need to know something, or be unsure, the onus is on them to contact a leader and find out. They can either do this at an Explorer event or from home via email, Facebook or text message.
At any time when we are meeting as Stannington Explorers, there needs to be an understanding that not only are the Explorers representing our Unit, but Scouting in general and should uphold the good name and reputation of both.
We expect that once a young person has committed to being an Explorer at Stannington, they will attend the majority of meetings. It is important that an Explorer notifies us as soon as they know that they cannot attend an event, big or small.
There may be some events which are compulsory, these will be marked clearly on the programme.
