Explorers (14 – 18 years old)
There are two Explorer groups in Marple, with both proving to be equally popular as Scouts make their transition from being properly looked after to actually having to take care of themselves! Both groups meet on a weekly basis, with the Original Explorers on Mondays, and Combs Explorers (twitter) on Wednesdays, from 20.00 – 22.00.
