Serbia Explorer Belt 2019

The biannual West Lancs’ organised Explorer Belt will be held in Serbia from approximately 27th July to 11th August 2019. The Explorer Belt is one of the top awards in Scouting and is aimed at Explorer Scouts and Network members aged 16 to 24 on the date of the expedition. The 10-day expedition will give Explorers and Network members the opportunity to learn about Serbia’s way of life and its culture.

In small teams, participants take on a project and mini-challenges with an emphasis on meeting local people.

Travelling independently, the expedition can be undertaken using a variety of modes of travel, but the majority of people complete it primarily on foot. Participants are expected to plan their own route for the expedition; manage their travel and food within a pre-set budget; select and organise their own major project and undertake challenges set by the leadership team and others.

To find out more about this opportunity to explore somewhere new, then please like the Facebook page: facebook.com/WLSEB2019 or email explorer.belt@westlancsscouts.org.uk for more information. The deadline for applications is 16th September.
