Scouts, guides and pathfinders in Luxembourg

There are 3 main movements of scouting in Luxembourg: the FNEL, Fédération Nationale des Eclaireurs et Eclaireuses Luxembourg, the LGS, Lëtzebuerger Guiden a Scouten and the ESL, Europa Scouten vu Lëtzebuerg.

Scouting activities

Allowing your children and teenagers to participate to scouts activities will enable them to meet other children and create extra-curricular friendship connexions. Moreover, participating to activities outside or inside, respecting nature and other teach children values that they will remember all life long.
The valuable principles of scouting and pathfinders are observed:  the empowerment of children and young people, the blooming of social life, team spirit development, the learning of tolerance, the respect of nature and others… and so many different values which are only taught by living together and sharing moments and activities.

Moreover, camps and meetings are organised during the school holidays and on the weekends allowing your children to meet other young people in a united and educational spirit.

H.R.H. Grand Duke Guillaume, heir to the throne, hold the position of Chief Scout of Luxembourg following the death of his grandfather, Grand-Duke Jean in 2019.
