General Information Course Programme Cayman Islands Scouts Association
Welcome! Scouting was founded by Lord Baden Powell in 1907. The name "Scouts" was chosen by Baden-Powell, because of its romantic meaning of self-sufficient explorers who were useful to others and who could survive off the land with their own skills.
What is scouting? Scouting is a system of progressive self-education through a Promise and Law, learning by doing, membership in small groups, under adult guidance, progressive discovery and acceptance of your responsibility and training towards self-government directed towards the development of character and acquisition of competence, self-reliance, dependability and capacities for cooperative growth.
