What is Scouting?

Scouting Ireland is a voluntary, non-formal educational movement for young people. It is independent, non-political, open to all without distinction of origin, race, creed or gender, in accordance with the purpose, principles and methods conceived by the Founder, Robert Baden-Powell and as stated by the World Organisation of the Scouting Movement. Scouting Ireland encourages the physical, intellectual, character, emotional, social and spiritual development of young people so that they can achieve their full potential and as responsible citizens, to improve society.

Scouting Ireland is the National Scout Association for Ireland and a member of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement. Scouting Ireland was formed on 1st January 2004 from the two original Scout associations in Ireland, Scouting Ireland (S.A.I.) and Scouting Ireland (C.S.I.). Both associations voted to join together to form a new single association in 2003, following a decision to set this process in motion in 1998. Scouting Ireland has over 40,000 members across Ireland, including Northern Ireland where Scouting Ireland works in partnership with the Scout Association Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom Scout Association.
