EUROPA 2007 - Scouts

<b>100 years of Scouting</b><p>Scouting, also known as the Scout Movement, is the world's largest international youth organisation with more than 38 million Scouts in 216 countries. The Boy Scout movement was founded in Great Britain in 1907 by Robert Stephenson Baden-Powell, a lieutenant general in the British Army. Baden-Powell got the idea from his experiences with the British Army in South Africa in the Second Boer War, where he was in charge of a group of youths that supported the troops by carrying messages during the Siege of Mafeking (1899-1900), and from Woodcraft Movement founded by the painter and writer Ernest Thompson Seton in the USA four years earlier. To put his ideas on the training of boys into practise, Baden-Powell gathered 21 boys of mixed social backgrounds and held a week-long camp in August 1907 on Brownsea Island. The camp was a great success and in the autumn that year Baden-Powell started promoting his book Scouting for Boys which became popular reading among the boys of Great Britain. Youngsters started to organise themselves into scout groups and scouting quickly spread first throughout the British Empire and later around the globe. Originally, the Boy Scout program was aimed at boys, but Girl Scout groups began to appear as well. The movement employs a program of non-formal education with an emphasis on practical outdoor activities (including hiking, camping, etc.) teaching youngsters outdoor skills and aiming to develop a sense of community, a sense of responsibility and the ability to help others. Characteristic of the movement is the Scout uniform which intents to hide all differences because scouting is open to everybody regardless social standing, religion or race. In Slovenia, there are two scout associations — The Scout Association of Slovenia which was established in 1951 and became a member of The World Scout Association in 1994 and The Slovene Catholic Girl Guides and Boy Scouts Association. <p> Bojan Bračič
