Explorer Belt

The Explorer Belt is the challenge of a lifetime, 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 with it a real understanding of a different country, its people and way of life.

Chief Scout’s Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Platinum Awards; and the Queen’s Scout Award

These are the highest awards available in each section. They all involve working towards global activities – whether this be through the achievement of the Global Challenge; or completing some of the activities from the international list.
