Explorers uniform and badge placement

You don't need a uniform to join. But once you've settled in, you'll start speedily earning badges, and you'll need to know where to put them! 

Explorer leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Explorers the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
