There is no formal [[Scouting]] organization yet in [[Turkmenistan]], due to the [[Politics of Turkmenistan|political situation]] and because Turkmenistan refuses to join any organization because of its "status of [[Neutrality Arch|permanent neutrality]]," which was accepted by the [[United Nations General Assembly]] on [[December 12]], [[1995]]. The only widespread [[outreach]] activities for Turkmen children between ages 8 and 14 are 10 to 14 day [[Summer camp|camps]] that do not provide any [[education]]al components, but organize some [[cultural events]] like [[concert]]s, [[poem]]s and [[Competitive dance|dance competitions]].
With the death of [[Saparmurat Niyazov]] on [[December 21]], [[2006]], the situation may change rapidly, possibly opening for the expansion of Scouting.
