This category is dedicated to Scouting in the United States. Boy Scouting was founded by Ernest Thompson Seton on the English model of Lord Robert Baden-Powell. The Boy Scouts of America was first incorporated on February 8, 1910 and subsequently chartered by Congress in 1916 as a private organization. The Girl Scouts were founded by Juliette Low at Savannah in 1912 based on her experiences with scouting in the United Kingdom. The Boy and Girl Scouts comprise the largest youth organizations in the United States working to provide an educational program for children and young adults to build character, to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and to develop personal fitness.
