The Merlin Explorers currently meet on a Friday evening from 8pm to 10pm.

The explorers range from 14 years of age to 18 years of age. The Explorers run the section with the help and guidance of their leader Angela Yarwood with help from Michele Millington, Allan Millington and Darren Grace.

They cover lots of exciting badge work, cover adrenaline action sports including abseiling, climbing wall, BMX, Ice Skating, street sports, archery, shooting and axe throwing to name a few. They go on lots of hikes and often camp out.

The Explorers can also undertake their Duke Edinburgh awards, become Young Leaders which gives them an excellent start when applying for new jobs and can apply to attend The World Jamborees.
