‘Scouting is ‘a game’. It’s a game designed primarily to help young people develop into self-reliant, resourceful and responsible adults, or ‘good citizens’. It’s not a game to be won or lost and then forgotten. Instead it’s a game to learn and play when young, and then apply through out an entire lifetime.



Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the Founder of Scouting.
One World – One Promise!

The Scout Program - how it all began...

Lord Robert Baden-Powell "B-P" – Chief Scout of the World

The name of Baden-Powell is known and respected throughout the world as that of a man who in his 83 years led two separate and complete lives, one as a soldier fighting for his country, and the other as a worker for peace through the brotherhood of the Scout Movement.

Today's world wide brotherhood of Scouting came about because young people themselves decided they wanted it. The early life and military career of Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Gilwell, gave it impetus and direction.

Pumpkin Carving

The present day Scout Movement began accidentally, resulting from an experimental camp for boys held in August 1907 on Brownsea Island, off the south coast of England. Lord Robert Baden-Powell completely satisfied with the success of the camp, he published a book based on his own adventurous life in 1908 and called it Scouting for Boys. It was an instant best seller and Scouting was formed from the hundreds of young boys who registered into the program.

It became so popular, enrolment increased. B-P had to create a separate program for youth aged 8 to 10 years, using Rudyard Kipling’s ‘Jungle Book’ and the Wolf Cub Packs were born. Likewise for the youth aged 15-17, Venturers was the next program created, a more challenging program. Rovers had to be created to accommodate the Venturer who were almost 18 did not want to leave the program and an even more challenging and interesting program was set in place. The youngest section, Beavers, began in Winnipeg, Canada as parents noticed their 5-7 year old children were as interested as their older siblings in the program. Today Scoutsabout and Extreme Adventure add to Scouting, offering 7 distinctive programs for youth around the world.

Scouts want to experience the adventurous life of the vagabond, pioneer and explorer - elements found in the nature of almost all young people. To active Scouts, Scouting means having fun and learning with their friends.

Today, more than 28 million youth and adults, boys and girls, take part in Scouting programs in 155 countries and territories worldwide.
