At heart many Scouts are explorers, do-ers, adventurers and give-it-a-go-ers.

It has been part of our DNA from the very beginning right back in 1907. Today we’re offering Scouts and Explorer scouts to meet new people, learn new skills and achieve feats they never thought possible. And it all starts right on your doorstep.

Who is the District expeditions team?

Our expedition leaders are a group of leaders from our district who enjoy walking and want to give the new generation of scouts a chance to do the same.

Walking is one the best ways of getting good exercise and staying healthy. Expeditions mix this with stunning scenery, breath taking locations and activities that make these trips that will be remembered forever.

We could say more, but instead watch this video made by Mountain Training. It sums up perfectly why people should walk among the hills and mountains.

Can I find out more?

If you want to find out more about a specific expedition then feel free to ask your leader. Or contact us through the Facebook page or by emailing [email protected].

If you want to take up hillwalking then check out this page on the Scouts website about hillwalking. It’s also the place if you want to earn your Scouting permit if you are an Explorer scout, Scout Network member or adult volunteer.

Or if you really want to dream big and complete expeditions to some of the most beautiful and extreme places in the world, check out HSX: Hampshire Scout Expeditions.
