Our history

Scouting was started in 1907 by Lord Robert Baden-Powell in the United Kingdom. His vision was to create a better world. He started this great movement that combines adventure with solid values so that you could leave the world a little better than you found it.  He developed a Scout Promise and ten Scout laws that Scouts still live by today.

Scouting in South Africa has a long history  and is home to some of the oldest Scout Groups outside of the UK. Currently KZN is the largest Scouting region in the country, with predominantly Cubs and Scouts in schools.
