The Seychelles Scout Association (SSA) is the national Scouting organization of the Seychelles. Scouting in Seychelles was founded in 1927 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in 2002. The association has 584 members (as of 2004).


Scouting in Seychelles started in 1927 as an overseas branch of The Scout Association (UK) and aimed mainly to British boys. Later it was opened to all boys. In 1977, Scouting was banned by the government of the now independent country.

The Scout movement was readmitted in 1994 and became a member of WOSM in 2002. Since 1998, the SSA is twinned to the Greater London South West County of the Scout Association (UK).


The association is divided in three age-groups:
