Berkshire Scouts


As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old.  

With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, 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 such as mountaineering, parascending and off shore sailing; Explorers offers fun and adventure for all.

Taceham Hundred Explorer Scouts have 3 sections in the District; Titans, Olympians & Apollo.

Titans meet on a Monday night at 1st Thatcham Scout Hut, Thackery Lane, Thatcham (opposite St Mary’s Church) between 7.30pm and 9.30pm.

Apollo meet on a Thursday night at 1st Compton Scout Hut, Cheseridge Rd, Compton between 8pm and 9.30pm.

Explorers also have the opportunity to be a part of The Young Leaders’ Scheme which develops their leadership skills and sense of responsibility, by helping to run meetings for younger sections. We have a very successful young leader unit in Taceham Hundred with over 50 young leaders helping in other sections.
