posted 22 Aug 2013, 04:37 by Sam Scott


The Explorer Belt is an international challenge for Explorers over 16 years old and members of the Scout Network.

The belt involves undertaking an international expedition of at least 10 days to find out about another county, its people and culture. Whilst there you complete a main project pre-agreed before leaving and a series of short mini projects which may be surprise projects set just before you leave.


  • 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.

Explorer Belt Expeditions should be overseen by a local District sponsor and the County Awards Co-ordinator to help guide your preparations and validate the completition of the award.
