Some ScoutWikis have had a large spam attack, therefore the Captcha has been changed to one that is more difficult for bots and other non-Scouts.

Welcome to the English language ScoutWiki. ScoutWiki is a free encyclopaedia which consists of Scouting and Guiding related articles. Anyone can participate by creating a new page or by editing an existing article. The English version of ScoutWiki currently has 2,637 articles in English. However, most of these articles could use some improvement, as compared to (e.g.) the Finnish, the French and the Dutch ScoutWiki's. To make this wiki a useful tool for scouts all over the world, your help is desired! Can we count on you?
This month's featured article
A Scout (in some countries a Boy Scout) is usually between 11 to 18 years of age. Because of the large age and development span, many Scouting associations have split this age group in a junior and a senior section. Scouts are organized into troops averaging twenty to thirty Scouts under guidance of one or more Scout Leaders. Troops subdivide into patrols of about six Scouts and engage in outdoor and special interest activities. Some national Scouting associations have special interest programs such as Air Scouts, Sea Scouts, outdoor high adventure, Scouting bands, and rider scouts.
