We will be sharing loads of information & giving you important updates about how we're going to progress during lockdown. Register now:

Reminiscing about our fantastic trip to Belfast last summer to the @niscouts Northern Ireland Explorer Scout Jamboree #ExSite2019! Check out a video of our time there:

What a treat! Some evidence of 16 beautifully crafted macaroni cheeses and garlic breads! All created by the hands of our Explorer Scouts. Shout out to one who made it using a good old outdoor stove method 🍽️🍝. And thanks to @Jack00wl our head chef 👨‍🍳👏 #LockdownLifeSkills

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
