What is Scouting

Scouting is a youth movement identifiable by its ideals, scheme and educational aims. Its scheme is based on five elements :-
The Scouts' Promise and Scouts' Code.
Activities organized in small groups with youths taking responsibility for leadership roles.
A practical uniform as a mark of membership, unity and equality.
A wide range of activities with an emphasis on adventure outdoors.
