Explorer Promise
On my Honour I Promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God, and the Queen,
To help other people at all times,
To obey the Scout Law.

Explorer Laws

2 A Scout is loyal
3 A Scout’s duty is to be useful and to help others
4 A Scout is a friend to all, and a brother to every other Scout

Their motto is "Be Prepared".

The emphasis is by training through hands on training in outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, canoeing and backpacking.

The Explorer Troop operates in Patrols of 6 to 8 members led by a Patrol Leader who shares responsibility with an adult leader for discipline, activity planning and training the less experienced members.

The new Explorer starts as a Tenderfoot and then progresses to Second Class.
