What is the new Scout Network about ?
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.
Queens Scout Award
Transition arrangements were put in place, which ended on December 31st 2015. This means that anyone completing the Award after 31st December 2015 will be required to complete all of the new requirements. This page provides a quick overview of the updated award and what you need to do to achieve it.
