Scouting and Guiding on the Falkland Islands
Scouting on the Falkland Islands is part of the United Kingdom Scout Association, due to the Falkland Islands' affiliation as a Crown Colony of the United Kingdom. The Falkland Scout Oath and Law, as well as other Scouting requirements, are the same as those of the United Kingdom.
Although the program activities are taken from the British system, Falkland 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. Falkland Scouts participate in numerous camps and events.
Scouting on the Falkland Islands started in 1984 when the 1st Falkland Islands Scout Group was established. Actually, there is also an Explorer Scout Unit, the Falkland Islands Explorer Scout Unit. Both groups are adminstered as part of The Scout Association's British Groups Abroad.
