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.
