The Scout Association

The Scout Association is the World Organization of the Scout Movement recognized Scouting association in the United Kingdom. Scouting began in 1907 through the efforts of Robert Baden-Powell. Due to the rapid growth of scouting and a desire to remove control from the publisher of the scouting magazine, the Boy Scout Association was formed in 1910 by the grant of a charter by the United Kingdom Parliament. In 1967 the name was formally changed to The Scout Association. Girls were admitted in 1976 so that the Association has now become a co-educational institution.
