Exploring – A non-traditional program of the BSA

When Scouting programs are mentioned most, if not all, think of Boy Scouts, Venturing, or Cub Scouts. There is another program offered through the BSA for youth ages 14 to 21 with a career-based approach. Explorer Posts are chartered by businesses or organizations within our communities that offer specific educational elements. Mandan Police Post #2853 is currently the only Explorer Post in Frontier Trails, but other opportunities are being explored for future.

If you have an idea for a Post, are interested in learning more about the Mandan Police Post, or would like to volunteer in an Exploring program contact Marie at the Bismarck Scout Office.
