Moving on from 1st Ash Vale Scouts? Get in touch!


Hybrid is the 1st Ash Vale designated Explorer Scout Unit. We are based in the Harpers road scout hut, just 1.5 miles from the 1st Ash Vale Scout HQ. We have been the designated Explorer unit since the national creation of the explorer section back in 2002.

We meet mainly on fridays from 19:30 - 21:30 to make moving on from 1st Ash Vale Scouts as simple as possible. We also hold with regular lightweight weekend camps incorporating hikes and other activities. We actively encourage the use of bivi bags, and hammocks rather than tents.

Our program is outdoor focused, and we make the most of our huts secure outdoor camping space giving the best scouting experience at a low cost for our explorer scouts. Other activities include climbing, shooting, go-karting, paintball, canoeing and much much more.

We will teach you valuable skills like fire lighting, survival skills, knife and axe skills and help you through the Duke of Edinburgh and Queen Scout awards with other explorer scouts in the Blackwater Valley District.
