scoutsScouting is an international voluntary, educational, non political Movement for young people open to all – boys and girls without distinction of origin, race, gender, and creed or ethnic/tribal background in accordance with the Purpose, Principles and Methods as conceived by the Founder, Lord Baden Powell. Scouting in Kenya started on 24th November 1910 with the formation of the first Nairobi troop at St. John’s Church (C.M.S.) Pumwani. In 1921, the first Nakuru Troop was formed and in 1925 the first Eldoret troop was registered. The first Kijabe (Kenton College) troop was registered in 1926. During this time, the troops formed were mainly composed of Europeans and Asians. The first African troop was formed at Alliance Boys High School under the name “First Kikuyu Troup” in 1927

Its objective is the development of young people into responsible, active citizens, who will positively contribute towards societal progress.

The Movement was founded by Lord Robert Baden Powel of Gilwell in 1907 when he organized the first experimental camp for boys at Brownsea Island in Southern England.

The Movement is the largest Youth Movement in the World – spread over 216 countries and territories with a membership of over 35 million boys and girls.
