Združenje slovenskih katoliških skavtinj in skavtov (ZSKSS, Slovenian Catholic Girl Guides and Boy Scouts Association) is the national Guiding organization of Slovenia. Guiding in Slovenia was started in 1922. The ZSKSS was founded on March 31, 1990 and became a member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 1996. The overall organization is coeducational. Patrols are single-sex, while united in a mixed troop.[1] The ZSKSS has about 4,500 members in 72 groups all over Slovenia.

Affiliated to ZSKSS is the Slovenska Zamejska Skavtska Organizacija (SZSO) serving Slovenian Scouts in Friuli-Venezia Giulia in Italy, which is also affiliated to the Associazione Guide e Scouts Cattolici Italiani.[2]

For individual members of ZSKSS, Zveza tabornikov Slovenije, the Slovenian WOSM member, guarantees the right of personal WOSM-membership.
