Scouts and Guides
The Genesis of Scouting and Guiding in the World
The Boy Scouts Movement had a simple start in the year 1907 when a retired Army
General Lord Baden Powell conducted an experimental camp in Brown sea Island in
England with 20 boys. The successful conduct of the camp and publication of the
Book “Scouting for Boys” in a fortnightly marked the start of the Boy Scout Movement.
In the year 1910, Crystal palace Rally was held where Girls wearing the boy Scout
uniform appeared and wanted to join the Scout Movement. Lord Baden Powell decided
to start a movement for Girls with the help of his sister Agnes Baden Powell.
