History of Scouting

The Scouting Movement has a very interesting history.

Lord Robert Baden Powell, started it in 1906. From that time on the present, Scouting had a great impact on young people all over the world.

Lady Olave Baden Powell, formerly Olave St. Claire Soames, came into the movement when she married Baden Powell and had since been actively involved in the movement in 1916 when she was appointed Country Commissioner for Sussex and later as Chief Commissioner.

In 1930, the world Bureau conferred on her the title of World Chief Guide, a position she held up to the time of her death in 1977. Henceforth, June 25 was called Olave Day.
