INTERNATIONAL OVERSEAS

Explorer Belt
 

The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime for Explorers over 16 years old but more specifically aimed at members of the Scout Network.

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.

LEAP

 

Kent Scout Explorer Scouts are taking part in an overseas adventure. Rock climbing/squeezing, gorge scrambling, white water rafting, navigating a high ropes course like no other, experiencing archery, kayaking, canoeing, raft building, paddle boarding, abseiling and bouldering whilst taking in the amazing scenery of the Italian Alps are all part of the programme.

South Africa 2019
 

In partnership with the CoCo Foundation the expedition will involve helping to build an orphanage.

Kenya 2020
 

This expedition will focus on working with a community program to support street children

Uganda 2021

ReQuest 2021
 

Almost one hundred years ago in 1921 the great explorer Ernest Shackleton selected two scouts to join him on his final Quest expedition to Antarctica.
In 2021 on the 100th Anniversary Kent Scouts hope to recreate this experience for thirty network scouts and ten adult leaders to have an a life changing experience and raise awareness of Scouting's strong links with the wild Antarctic continent.
