The scouting movement in Russia was set up in 1909 after the last Russian Emperor read the book "Scouting for Boys” and initiated the development of scout groups throughout the country.
After the Russian Revolution, scouting was outlawed, many members went abroad, the rest worked underground.
After the breakdown of the Soviet Union, part of the Russian scouts returned home, so now our organization functions both in Russia and abroad.
Now there are more than 150 squads in Russia, about 2000 members. Every year we hold about 150 events - hikes, camps, meetings.
