I always thought that the name "Explorers" was very apt, as these young people
are literally exploring every aspect of their world through our program. I
can't imagine another name which would be half as appropriate. I CAN see
confusion with the Boys Scout Venture Program developing should the Explorers
be renamed "Venturers" (a rather ungraceful term), so perhaps "Rovers" should
get the nod- it does seem to have some support among the old timers. But it
is not at all descriptive of the program, nor does it have the literary impact
of the name "Explorers". And as we all know, buzzwords are one of our more
useful tools in motivating teens today.
