SpiralScouts™ International is a youth organization in the United States for children of neo-pagan faiths though it is open to others.[1] It was created in 1999 by the Aquarian Tabernacle Church after the Boy Scouts of America decided not to recognize the religious programs of the Wiccan faith as part of the BSA Religious Emblems Programs.[2]
