Explorer Belt – Romania 2022

Between: 26th June 2022 - 13th July 2021 Location: Transylvania, Romania


Following the success of the Explorer Belt trip to Romania in 2019, we are looking to run another Explorer Belt in 2022. This will again be held in the Transylvania region of Romania.

The Explorer Belt is a challenge of a lifetime.

It is a chance to take part in a ten day expedition that brings you a real understanding of a different country, its culture and way of life.

You will develop this understanding by travelling through the chosen country, working as part of a small team to complete a series of projects and most importantly by meeting local people.

It is an experience and an achievement that you will remember for the rest of your life.


Be an Explorer Scout aged 16 or over, a Scout Network member.


The cost for the Explorer Belt will £1200 payable in monthly instalments on the 1st of each month starting in November 2021. The deposit to secure your place on the trip is £150 and is due by the 30th September 2021.


The Explorer Belt will be held in the summer of 2022, COVID restrictions permitting. The provisional dates are 26 June – 13 July 2022. These will be confirmed when flight schedules etc are released.


We will be holding a number of training days / weekends which you will be expected to attend. These are when you will undertake the preparation work for your Explorer Belt prior to leaving for Romania. Provisional dates for these are below:

31st October 2021 – Troon Scout Hall
