The Explorer Scout Programme

The Explorer Scout Programme is designed to be attractive and relevant to the Explorer Scouts with the main emphasis being on Participation whilst giving the Explorer Scouts opportunities to gain the Progressive Training Awards, Activity Badges, Group Awards and External Body Qualifications, such as BCU, RYA, First Aid and MLTB.

The aim of these pages is to give Explorer Units ideas for programme themes and meeting activities. Below are some examples please download and use the ideas and themes contained. Also please email us with programme ideas and themes that your Unit has successfully run. By doing this we can continue to develop this resource.
