A rich history
Scouting has a long history in Luxembourg. The country’s first Scout group was created in 1914, just four years after Lord Baden-Powell founded the Scouting movement.
Over the years, scouting in Luxembourg has grown exponentially. Today, it has several active scout groups throughout the country. These groups offer Luxembourg children and young adults a platform to engage in a wide range of activities. These range from outdoor adventures to community service projects.
Scouting in Luxembourg is based on fundamental values that guide its activities and programs. These values include teamwork, responsibility, respect for others and the environment, and personal development.
Through a variety of Scouting activities, young people are encouraged to discover their potential, develop leadership skills and become active, engaged citizens.
Luxembourg’s scout groups organize regular meetings and camps. These emphasize the development of practical skills and autonomy, and the promotion of teamwork.
Hiking, camping, orienteering and first-aid training are all part of the Scouting experience. In this way, young people acquire skills that will be useful in their current and future lives. They also improve their problem-solving skills.
