We’re part of Watford North Explorer Scout Unit
Catering for all 14 – 17 year olds looking for
adventure and outdoor activities


The Boggites are Explorer Scouts,
perhaps the most exciting section in
Scouting – The largest youth movement
in the world.
We meet most Monday Nights –
sometimes doing indoor activities,
cooking, games, learning skills such as
First Aid etc but we get out as much as
possible, especially in the Summer
months – Canoeing, climbing, trips out –
all sorts of interesting places and things
to do!
About once a month there is a
weekend event or trip –
This could be a weekend away in North Wales, a barge trip or sailing weekend on the Broads, a camp with other Explorer Scouts such as Gilwell 24 or a fun event like Pimp My Trolley or the Monopoly Run.
Summer Expeditions
– We go away for at least a week each summer,
usually longer and often abroad,
including the occasional far flung
destination. Eg Laos & Vietnam in 2016
