Scouting began in 1907 when Robert Baden-PowellLieutenant General in the British Army, held the first Scouting encampment at Brownsea Island in England. Baden-Powell wrote the principles of Scouting in Scouting for Boys (London, 1908), based on his earlier military books, with influence and support of Frederick Russell Burnham (Chief of Scouts in British Africa), Seton of the Woodcraft IndiansSmith of the Boys' Brigade, and his publisher Pearson. During the first half of the 20th century, the movement grew to encompass three major age groups each for boys (Cub ScoutBoy ScoutRover Scout) and, in 1910, a   new organization, Girl Guides, was created for girls (Brownie GuideGirl Guide and Girl ScoutRanger Guide).

The movement employs the Scout method, a program of   informal education with an emphasis on practical outdoor activities, including campingwoodcraftaquaticshikingbackpacking, and sports. Another widely recognized movement characteristic is the Scout uniform, by intent hiding all differences of social standing in a country and making for equality, with neckerchief and campaign hat or comparable head wear. Distinctive uniform insignia include the fleur-de-lis and the trefoil, as well as merit badges and other patches.

2007 marked the centenary of Scouting world wide, with member organizations planning events all over the world in order to celebrate the event.
