Scouting in Aruba shared a common history with the other Netherlands Antilles until the political separation of the island from the rest of the chain. Scouting Aruba is an Associate Member of the Interamerican Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

Scouting in Aruba is centered around the cities and villages. There was originally one large Scout Association and one very small one, until the two Scout associations negotiated a merger. Scouts in Aruba participate in many Caribbean camps, often travelling by boat to camp on nearby islands with other Caribbean Scouts.
