I understood that in the early history of Exploring, it was known as
Explorer Scouts (very briefly) and that vocational Exploring came along a
few years after the Explorer concept started.

Scouts Canada is co-ed at the option of each Group Committee (which hosts
units of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers).
In Australia it is illegal to be a single-sex organization unless it is
completely single-sex; for instance, Girl Guides of Australia does not
admit male members at all (as leaders, for instance). The Scout
Association of Australia is mixed.
