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.[1]

In 1985 the name of the Association was changed to "De Gule Spejdere i Danmark — Baden-Powell spejderne". It currently has 12 Groups.[2][3] 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.

Sections

The Gule Spejdere Groups are divided into sections, with each section serving a different age range of children, youths or adults.
