Phoenix Explorers


At Phoenix Explorer Scouts we provide Scouting experiences for 14 to 18 year olds in the Basingstoke area of Hampshire. We are part of the Basingstoke East Scout District with many of our young people coming from Chineham, Popley, Sherborne, and other surrounding areas but we are open to everyone!

We’ve built our site to try and be a one-stop shop for everything you need as an Explorer. We have information about our Unit and how to join us; the wider Scout District to which we belong; all our forms, policies and documents; and information and requirements for all Explorer Scout badges.

We’ve designed our site to engage with directly with Explorer Scouts which means that it has been designed for mobile devices and tablets and to have a clean and fast look and feel. This makes it easy to read no matter where you are. We’ve also designed the site to be secure, complying with all the latest security features the web has to offer so whatever you do with our site, you can feel safe.¬†We hope you find what you are looking for, however, if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
