The Saint Lucia Scout Association
The Saint Lucia Scout Association (SLSA) is the national Scouting organization of Saint Lucia. Scouting in Saint Lucia started in 1910 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in 1990. The coeducational association has 355 members (as of 2004).
Scouting in Saint Lucia started in 1910 as an overseas branch of The Scout Association (UK). In 1935, the Saint Lucia Scout Association was officially founded as a branch of British Scouting. After the independence of Saint Lucia in 1968, the national association worked towards the recognition by WOSM, which was received in 1990. The SLSA hosted the Caribbean Jamboree in 2000.
The association is divided in three age-groups:
