Explorer Belt Badge

Explorer Belt 2019

What is the Explorer Belt

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.

After the 10 day expedition there will be time to relax in Romania for a few days prior to returning home – this is all included in the trip.

The complete requirements for the award can be found here.

The expedition will take place between Sunday 30th June – Tuesday 16th July

Where is it happening?

How much will it cost?

The cost will be approx. £850 per person
