Youth Organisations

Scouts

Scouting began in 1907 as a programme designed by Robert Baden-Powell for boys 11 to 18 years of age. The Girl Guides programme was started three years later in 1910. Baden-Powell’s wife Olave, became the new Chief Guide in 1918. A Wolf Cub section was formed for younger boys and activities and for older boys, a Rover Scout branch was formed.
