The Confédération Sénégalaise du Scoutisme, the national federation of several Scouting organizations of Senegal, was founded in 1930, and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1963. The coeducational Confédération Sénégalaise du Scoutisme has 26,361 members as of 2004.

The Senegalese Scout Confederation is composed of two associations, Association des Scouts et Guides du Sénégal and the Eclaireurs du Sénégal. Both associations are open to boys and girls of any religion. There are sometimes joint leader training courses. Units are mixed at Cub and Rover level only. The units have joint activities in relation to national campaigns including child health projects.

A satellite office of the Africa Scout Region is located in Dakar.

In 1971, Albert A. N'Diaye was awarded the Bronze Wolf, the only distinction of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, awarded by the World Scout Committee for exceptional services to world Scouting.

There are many programs relating to youth exchange and international work camps. Many Scout projects throughout the country are implemented in relation to rural development. Community development projects are centered on health, including nutrition and vaccination of children, tree planting, and building and improving schools.
