membership badge of the Guides et Scouts de Monaco

Monaco has one of the world's smallest national Scouting and Guiding organizations, the Association des Guides et Scouts de Monaco (AGSM). The association has about 71 members (48 Scouts, 23 Guides - as of 2003).

The Monegasque Scout organization was under the patronage of French Scouting since 1918, and became an independent member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1990. Guiding in Monaco started in 1929 and became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1963. In 1992 the Scout association and the Guide association merged and formed the AGSM.

There is a Sea Scout division which conducts many activities on the Mediterranean Sea.

The Scouts of Monaco have cooperated with the World Bureau although they were not members until 1990.
