Who we are?

Scout groups are the organizational basis of the scout movement, and are composed of children ages 6 to 21 years of age with their educators.

Each of these groups Scouts plan, develop and evaluate our own programs-Projects-activities independently (dynamic, games, camping, nature routes, camps, etc..), Setting their objectives as the reality of the environment.

Same time, we are divided internally into sections according to the age and Educational development of youngsters, which lets to apply an educational methodology adapted to the physical, moral, social, intellectual and emotional development of its members.

Scouting in the world
There are more than 28 million scouts in almost all the countries of the world. The all follow the same ideals and objectives. To sum it up in one sentence scouts:  “try to leave the world better than they found it”.
Our fundator was Banden Powell, a British General, he founded the scout movement in 1907 and since then the scout movement has spreaded all over the world.

Our ideals
We believe that education is everything and so we work for a better, more just and united world, where the care of the environment, respect for human rights and understanding between individuals and people is a reality.
To achieve this mission we consider essential:
•    Educating in freedom, justice, solidarity and personal responsibility and community in the context of coexistence, respect and service.
•    Promoting those spiritual values inherent in the individual, to help overcome the individualism and materialism, and encourages the growth of his personality.
•    Awakening critical and participatory sense, respecting personal liberty and promoting healthy lifestyles, which allows to analyze of the ideologies and the options that society offers you to make a choice later in life.
