As the scouting association was so popular, it was split into different aged sections, to acquire to everyones needs. Explorers are the most awesome section of the scouting association aged 13 1/2 to 18. Often stereotyped as nerds singing songs round a camp fire, they always manage to prove the stereotype wrong. They meet up in different troops, (each troop part of a district including other troops), usually once a week, and go camping several times a year on average.
The weekly meetings basically become a social club to mess around at, and the camps mean pissing around on a climbing wall or another activity during the day, and rave in mass groups in the discos at night (some secretly drinking). It's used as a get away from school, parents, with lots of freedom.
I had well lots of fun camping with my Explorer Scouts, init blud.
