Welcome to The Unit 👋

We're Woodseats Explorers, aka The Unit - one of the area's largest and most successful Explorer Units for 14-18 year-olds.

We believe that by doing more, people become more… so that’s what we’re all about.

You’ll get to do something new every Thursday, everything from Archery and Air Rifle Shooting to Wild Camping and Cooking.

Over 60 Explorers join us regularly, supported by a Leadership Team of 16 amazing volunteers.

Some Thursday nights we’re indoors, but where we can, we love to get outdoors, into the surrounding Peak District. Luckily we own our own fleet of minibuses to make this happen.

You’ll gain new experiences, a whole lot more confidence, have the opportunity to challenge yourself, gain some independence and yes, grow up a little too (only if you wish though).

You’ll get to complete your DofE, join us on international summer camps, and of course, do loads of awesome stuff with us each and every week! Unlike most Scout groups, we run throughout the school holidays too.

See you soon✌️
