US Explorers may belong to as many Explorer Posts as they wish (if
approved by the leaders and parents, of course), paying a registration
fee in only one. A male Explorer may also belong to a Boy Scout Troop,
also, but only one of those.
The primary reason for the multiple registration option is the difference
between posts. There are over 200 different kinds of posts possible,
including many high adventure posts, but also including career-oriented
(law enforcement, health, veterinary medicine, fire service,
computer -- well, you've seen a variety posted on this list during
periods of non-dormancy) or specific hobbies (archery, spelunking,
canoeing, stamp-collecting, etc.).
So, if the kids' interests are broad enough and the community support
deep enough, there are loads of opportunities.
Isn't that fun?
