Programme Section Support : Scout Network

Hello and welcome to the Scout Network in West Yorkshire, from your Assistant County Commissioner Scout Network, Matt Turner.

Below is some information about Scout Network in West Yorkshire, if I can be of any help please don’t hesitate to contact me.

There is a wealth of information on the dedicated national support pages at The Scout Association Members Area.

Explorer Belt Award

The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime. It is a chance to take part in a ten day expedition that brings you a real understanding of a different country, its culture and way of life. You will develop this understanding by travelling through your chosen country, working as part of a small team to complete a series of projects and most importantly by meeting local people. It is an experience and an achievement that you will remember for the rest of your life.
