The Scout Association of Macau is the national Scouting association in Macau. It is an associate Member of the Asia-Pacific Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement.

Scouting in Macau began in 1991, while Portuguese Scouting was present in Macau for many years prior. When Macau reverted from Portuguese administration to China in December, 1999, the future of Scouting in Macau seemed uncertain, but as a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, Macanese institutions are allowed to continue as before.

Macau has over 100,000 youth between the ages of 6 and 21, which gives the Scout Association much potential for membership.

Program Sections

  • Cub Scouts: 7 to 11
  • Scouts: 12 to 15
  • Rovers: 16 to 20

The Scout Motto is 隨時準備 in Chinese and "Sempre Pronto" in Portuguese, both of which mean "always ready".
