Scouts and Guides (Rovers –Rangers)

The Bharat Scouts and Guides is the national Scouting and Guiding association of India. Scouting was founded in India in 1909, whereas Guiding in India started in 1911. Scouting and Guiding is an approved type of character training & preparation for good citizenship designed for the benefit of boys and girls. Insisting on a sense of responsibility and trustworthiness affords to be individual opportunity for developing initiative and leadership and promotes self-control, self-reliance and self-direction. Scouting and Guiding is based upon three broad principles which represent fundamental laws and beliefs. They are referred to as: “Duty to God”, “Duty to others” and “Duty to self”.

The Aim of Scouting and Guiding is four-fold. The first is the formation of character; the second is the formation of sound health habits. The third is the training in the handicraft and the acquiring of useful skills; and the fourth is the cultivation of a proper spirit of service efficiently. The pursuit of this aim leads to the development of good citizenship, among boys and girls.
