The District Explorer Scouts (ACES) are run by the District Team through the District Explorer Scout Commissioner.

Units are located throughout Ashby and Coalville, some attached to Scout Groups although this does not preclude membership from outside of the Group. We also operate the Young Leader Unit which support sections within Groups and gives the Explorer Scouts great opportunities to undertake training and awards. There is also an active Duke of Edinburgh provision in the section as well as the opportunity for adventure through the Explorer Belt.

All wear the Explorer Scout uniform with a distinct black and emerald necker.

Units are open to all those 14-18 year old, whatever their background – Scouting, Guiding or neither!
