We provide a balanced programme that contains a great deal of flexibility and is designed primarily for participation and youth involvement. It can therefore be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for any young person, whatever their ability.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Explorers to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
