De Gule Spejdere i Danmark - Baden-Powell spejderne
|De Gule Spejdere i Danmark - Baden-Powell spejderne|
|Affiliation||World Federation of Independent Scouts|
The Yellow Scouts of Denmark — Baden-Powell Scouts (De Gule Speijdere i Danmark) started on 25 February 1984, as "Det Danske Pige- og Drenge Spejderkorps", aiming to return to a more traditional scouting approach as a response to changes in the mainstream Danish scouting movement.
In 1985 the name of the Association was changed to "De Gule Spejdere i Danmark — Baden-Powell spejderne". It currently has 12 Groups. In addition to being members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts they are members of the Danish Youth Council (DUF) which is an umbrella organization of democratic, community groups working with children and youth.
The Gule Spejdere Groups are divided into sections, with each section serving a different age range of children, youths or adults.
|Ulvergrenen||7–10||Group||Based on the Junglebog (Jungle Book).|
|Stifindere||10–12||Group||Inspired by North American Indians, concentrating on outdoors and camping skills.|
|Spejdertroppen||12–18||Group||The main Scout section, based on the patrol system.|
|Pionererne||18–21||Group||This section is used to develop scouting and leadership skills.|
|Roverklanen||21+||Group||For those over 21 who wish to remain in Scouting — with no upper age limit.|
