The Explorer Belt is the challenge of a lifetime. It involves exploring another country, its culture, customs and way of life. You can take on the Challenge as an Explorer or as a Network Member.

How to earn your award

To complete your Explorer Belt, you must be a member of Explorer Scouts or the Scout Network and be aged 16-25. Register at or via Compass as soon as you know you’re going to take up the challenge.

The Explorer Belt and buckle have been updated and there is also now a badge that can be worn on the uniform to signify the award has been achieved.
