| The Scout Movement was
started as a small camping activity in England in 1907 by Lord
Robert Baden-Powell. The experiences on the camp had an enormous impression
on the boys who participated. Lord Baden-Powell was determined to help young
people to become responsible citizens with strength and compassion. He taught
the youth to appreciate nature and friendship through the experiences and
the knowledge he acquired in his own youth and in army.
The young people were intrigued by Lord Baden-Powell's concepts. The book he wrote, "Scouting for Boys" became very popular among the boys, which caused the Scout movement to be established as a universal movement as a means to help the youth to grow up to be strong mentally as well as physically.
