National Scout Organisations

160 National Scout Organizations are members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement. These are listed below. The newest members joined on 1 July 2008: Cambodia, Montenegro, Syrian Arab Republic and Ukraine.

For the number of members in each country, when Scouting was founded, and when they joined World Scouting, click here.

Only one national Scout organization can be recognised in a country. In some countries the National Scout Organization is a federation composed of more than one Scout association. These are listed here, in black italic, under the National Scout Organization.

Of the 160 National Scout Organizations, 126 belong only to the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), and 34 belong both to WOSM and to The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

Of the 126 National Scout Organizations which belong only to WOSM, 100 are open to boys and girls in some or in all programme sections. 20 are only for boys. All 34 National Scout Organizations which belong both to WOSM and to WAGGGS are open to boys and to girls.

National members are encouraged to notify the concerning the creation of new web sites, or changes in their address.
