Congratulations to Sam one of our Explorer Scouts who raised over £600 at a music night he organised to raise funds for EuroJam @ej2020_official at the weekend!

Had the most hilarious time at Forest Camp this weekend channeling our acting skills with @DanB1079 and @ShiptonESU creating short films for our 1980s-themed Movie Making Camp 😂🙈🎥 #SHUTUP #SLAP

This weekend was our 1980s-themed Movie Making Camp! We made 4 short films in the style of a 1980s horror, inspired by "Gremlins"! We had an 80s party, drank mocktails made by our own Explorer Scout barman & played some hilarious games. The films will be released soon! 🤣🎬📽️🎊

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.
