How scouting start and evolved great movement it is today!!
Scouting is world-wide youth movement, that was founded way back in 1907 by Lord Robert Baden-Powell (BP). His vision was to create a better world for all who live in it and from this he developed the Scout Promise and Law that Scouts, which all scouts still live by today. Scouting combines adventure with solid values that inspire you to better yourself and helping other in all you do.
Due to the political climate in South Africa, four Scout Movements established themselves. In 1977 they united into one integrated organisation free for all, regardless of race or religion.
In 2000 the South African Scout Movement opened its doors to girls too, making the Movement open to all genders.
