International Scouting Opportunites
Learn About the Exciting Scouting Events Being Offered World Wide!
Scouting began in England in 1907, based on the ideas of founder Sir Robert S. S. Baden-Powell and his book Scouting for Boys. The book and program proved to have universal appeal for boys and quickly spread worldwide. The Scouting program spread around the world until it became what it is now—the largest voluntary youth movement in the world, with a membership of more than 25 million.
The International Committee of the Three Fires Council recongnizes Scouting as an international brotherhood and is committed to helping Scouts in the Three Fires Council interact with Scouts from other nations around the world. We are please to offer your this newsletter with up to date offerings of International Scouting Opportunities!
As member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, the Boy Scouts of America works through the BSA's International Department, to ensure that American Scouts and international Scouts are provided a common resource of programs, funding, and training that increases and enhances their experience in the brotherhood of Scouting.
