1908 – The first Boy Scout troop is organized in England by Robert Baden-Powell
The Scout movement, also known as Scouting or the Scouts, is a voluntary non-political educational movement for young people.
In 1906 and 1907 Robert Baden-Powell, a lieutenant general in the British Army, wrote a book for boys about reconnaissance and scouting.
This book, Scouting for Boys, was based on his earlier books about military scouting.
In mid-1907 Baden-Powell held a camp on Brownsea Island in England to test ideas for his book.
The publication of Scouting for Boys released in London January 24, 1908 are generally regarded as the start of the Scout movement.
Extra Note: Lieutenant General Robert Baden-Powell with his sister Agnes, also founded the world-wide Girl Guide / Girl Scout Movement.
