For the next three weeks, we are working together with Bangor East Explorers @northdownscouts in Belfast on online programme sharing.

We first met at the @niscouts #ExSite2019 Jamboree! ~40 participants on the session for our first time tonight...things got wild 😂

We also welcome 2 new Explorer Scout members to the Unit too!
Welcome Craig and Tom 👋

It's great to be growing our team of Explorer Scouts and we're looking forward to the year ahead 🎉

Who we are

We are Shipton ESU, the Explorer Scout Unit serving Sandbach and surrounding areas.

We are a part of the South West Cheshire District.

Relaunched in 2018, we provide 14 to 18-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and skills for life.

Scouting helps young adults reach their full potential. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

We meet every Thursday during school term time, usually at the Sandbach Scout Centre from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.

Where we meet

Members of the Explorer Unit can log in to this website to see the full programme, and all our forthcoming events and activities.

To sign up for an event, Explorers or parents can log in via My.Scout
