eXu Explorers

eXu is a District Explorer Scout Unit partnered with the 20th Sheffield Scout Group. We are open to anyone in the area aged between 14 and 18. Our programme covers a wide variety of activities and skills which allows our members to work towards their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award and Queens Scout Award as well as many social events and chances to do something different. For further information have a look through the web pages which include photos of recent events and our forthcoming programme or email exu@20th.org.uk

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

DofE logo 20th Sheffield

In 2016, we launched the DofE Award at the 20th, enabling our Explorer Scouts to undertake the Silver and Gold Awards. We have 24 Explorer Scouts working towards their Awards: 9 for Gold and 15 for Silver.

After attending training sessions covering route planning, navigation, camp-craft and first aid, and undertaking a practice expedition, our Silver participants completed their Qualifying Expedition over the Spring Bank Holiday. They navigated a 50km route over 3 days and 2 nights in the White Peak, carrying all of their equipment.

WELL DONE to all three teams!
