Awards

Explorers start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It all starts with an award.

Explorer leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Explorers the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.

Volunteer on your own terms
