The Scout Association of Gibraltar operates as a branch of the United Kingdom Scout Association, due to Gibraltar's affiliation as a Crown Colony of the United Kingdom.

The first overseas troop of The Scout Association, the 1st Gibraltar Scout Troop, was established in 1908. It has since amalgamated with the 4th Gibraltar Scout Troop, becoming the 1st/4th Gibraltar (Marquis of Milford Haven's Own) Scout Troop. By 1913, Lone Scouts were found in Gibraltar.

The Gibraltar Scout Oath and Law, as well as other Scouting requirements, closely follow that of the United Kingdom.

Although the program activities are taken from the British system, Gibraltar Scouting is geared to the local way of life. Training for Wood Badge and leader training are conducted with the help of British and nearby affiliated Scout associations. Gibraltar Scouts participate in numerous camps and events.
