Explorer Belt

The Explorer Belt is the challenge of a lifetime that is available to Explorer Scouts aged over 16 and members of the Scout Network.

It is a chance to undertake an international expedition over ten days that brings a real understanding of a different country, its people and way of life.

The Explorer Belt is often described as 'the antidote to the package holiday'. It is designed to help young people develop a real understanding of another country by travelling through that country, working as a small team to complete surprise projects, and meeting local people.

To complete the Explorer Belt, an Explorer Scout or member of the Scout Network must:

  • plan and train for an international expedition as part of a small team

  • travel to another country of their choice and travel through that country over ten days

  • complete a major project of their own choice

  • complete around ten smaller projects

  • keep a notebook or diary during the expedition

  • take part in a debriefing after the expedition

  • make a presentation about the expedition.
