Altitude Explorers frequently have Explorer-led evenings where the members decide for themselves what they want to do. These evenings teach them about organisation and time-management, allowing the young people to discuss amongst themselves and decide on the programme. They run the whole evening with the adult leaders supervising to ensure that they are safe.

Unsurprisingly, most of these evenings involve food.

Fifteen Explorer and Network Scouts members, aged 16 to 18, have returned from a very successful 10-day Explorer Belt expedition in The Netherlands.

All the young people ended their expedition with a three-night period of rest and relaxation at Beekse Bergen.
