Scouting in the Antarctic is maintained by a single troop of Argentine Scouts in Esperanza Base. The southernmost Scout unit of the world is affiliated to the Asociación Diocesana de Scouts Católicos Argentinos Castrense (Diocesan Association of the Catholic Scouts of Argentina - Military Diocese), an independent Scout organization with links to the Union Internationale des Guides et Scouts d'Europe.

The first known Scout in Antarctica was Paul Allen Siple who took part in two Byrd expeditions of 1928-1930 and 1933-1935, having first gone representing the Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout.
