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.
