Boy Scout redirects to this article but the article represents only one disputed view of the term Boy Scout which does not accord with original and early Boy Scout publications and dictionary definitions and encyclopaedias.
A Scout (in some countries a Boy Scout, Girl Scout or Pathfinder) is a boy or a girl, usually 10–18 years of age, participating in the worldwide Scouting movement. Because of the large age and development span, many Scouting associations have split this age group into a junior and a senior section. Scouts are organized into troops averaging 20–30 Scouts under the guidance of one or more Scout Leaders. Troops subdivide into patrols of about six Scouts and engage in outdoor and special interest activities. Troops may affiliate with local, national, and international organizations. Some national Scouting associations have special interest programs such as Air Scouts, Sea Scouts, outdoor high adventure, Scouting bands, and rider Scouts. Some troops, especially in Europe, have been co-educational since the 1970s, allowing boys and girls to work together as Scouts.
