Aged 16-24 and want any more information, want to view our launch event or need some answers to your questions? Please visit:
For the adventure of a lifetime, the sign up process will open soon... 🇮🇸🧭

Sadly, all Shipton ESU meetings have been suspended for the foreseeable future. This decision is based on strong advice given nationally by the UK Scout Association.

Resources will shortly become available to our Explorer Scouts so that we can keep scouting going at home! ⚜️

Aged 16-25? @CheshireScouts are organising a two week Explorer Belt International expedition in summer 2021. Join us for the launch event on Monday 23rd March at The Heath, Runcorn, at 7.30pm. For more info and to book, click here:

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
