A funk-steppin', body-poppin', knee-bendin', head-spinnin', leg-launchin' Thursday night!

Loved having Wusty from Cheshire's Street Dance Academy LIVE with us to tutor our Explorers in the art of Street Dance this evening 💥

Had a really productive @DofE awards workshop tonight. Got up-to-date with our Explorers' award work & discussed their next steps with the amazing guidance of Cheshire's awards advisor, Carol Frain @DofECheshireSco. Great to hear the progress of so many dedicated young people ⚜️

We are so pleased to be celebrating & learning more about #ScoutPride this week. We always strive to be an open, honest and inclusive Explorer Unit in developing our young people & hope that they feel able to be who they are as an Explorer Scout ⚜️

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
