Scouting and Guiding in Montserrat
Scouting and Guiding in Montserrat exist as branches of the parent organisations in the United Kingdom.
The Scout Association of Montserrat
The Scout Association of Montserrat operates as a branch of the United Kingdom Scout Association, due to Montserrat's affiliation as a British Overseas Territory. The Montserrat Scout Oath and Law, as well as other Scouting requirements, closely follow that of the United Kingdom.
Although the program activities are taken from the British system, Montserrat Scouting is geared to the local way of life. Training for Wood Badge and leader training are conducted with the help of British and nearby affiliated Scout associations. Montserrat Scouts participate in numerous camps and events.
Since the evacuation of much of the island, owing to an eruption of the previously dormant Soufriere Hills volcano that began on July 18, 1995, information from the area is difficult to obtain.
