Explorer Scouts make up the fourth Section of the Scouting Family. The 89th has a partnership with the Lawrence Fleet Explorer Unit which is led by Big Chi (Simon) .

Lawrence Fleet Explorers meet each week but not always at the 89th HQ. This is because they will often be out and about doing activities which are planned by the Explorers themselves.

Activities which the Unit has completed in the past range from the traditional Sea Scout activities such as sailing and canoeing to land based activities such as caving and geocaching. Some members even planned a skiing expedition to Italy!

Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old.

The Leaders appreciate that there will be times when Scouts will be busy doing other things such as exams—being an Explorer Scout can fit around these.
