Scouting and Guiding in Denmark


Scouting and Guiding in Denmark

The Scout and Guide movement in Denmark consists of about ten different associations. Most of them are members of two large federations, but there are also some independent organizations. Affiliated to Danish Scouting and Guiding are the organizations in Greenland, on the Faroe Islands and in Southern Schleswig.

Scouting in Denmark started in 1909. Danish Scouts were among the charter members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), Danish Guides among the founding members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

Girl Guiding in Denmark consists of girls only, while some WAGGGS countries allow boys to be included. As of 2003 there were 22090 girls involved in Denmark in Girl Guides.
