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
