Scouting in Macau began in 1991, while Portuguese Scouting was present in Macau for many years prior. When Macau reverted from Portuguese administration to China in December, 1999, the future of Scouting in Macau seemed uncertain, but as a Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, Macanese institutions are allowed to continue as before.
Macau has over 100,000 youth between the ages of 6 and 21, which gives the Scout Association much potential for membership.
- Cub Scouts: 7 to 11
- Scouts: 12 to 15
- Rovers: 16 to 20
The Scout Motto is 隨時準備 in Chinese and "Sempre Pronto" in Portuguese, both of which mean "always ready".
Prometo pela minha honra por amar e servir fielmente à minha religião e à minha terra, auxiliar o próximo, obedecer à Lei do Escoteiro.
On my honour, I promise that I will do my best to my Country, to Macau, and to my religion, to help other people and to keep the Scout Law.
