The Wild Wolf Explorer Unit is a mixed group of 14 to 18yr olds, who meet once a week as part of the Scout Movement. We have around 45 members and the Unit is led by a team of dedicated volunteers. Have a sniff around our website to see what we’re about……

Why Wild Wolf ESU?

Our name was chosen by the Explorers who formed the Unit over five years ago. Wolves have always been an important theme in Scouting, and some people think we’re pretty wild….

What do we do?

Since the Unit was formed in February 2009 we have climbed to the top of Snowdon in Wales, surfed in Cornwall, slept out in improvised shelters in the snow, paddled and walked hundreds of miles on Duke of Edinburgh expeditions and been to four fantastic Jamborettes in Holland, Austria, Switzerland, and Denmark, as well as sending representatives to Jamborees in Scotland, Sweden, and Japan.

Age Range

Our core age range is from a member’s 14th birthday to their 18th. We only accept people younger than 14 in special circumstances, and when an Explorer turns 18 they can become part of their local Scout Network, which is for 18 to 25 year olds.


If you are interested in joining the Unit, either as an Explorer, or as an adult volunteer we would love to hear from you. Please visit our contact page for details of how to get in touch.
