The United Kingdom is the home of Guiding and Girl Scouting. Scouting in general began in August 1907 at a trial camp on Brownsea Island. Lord Robert Baden-Powell of Gilwell, now known the world over as B-P, conducted the camp. With the publication of B-P's "Scouting for Boys" early in 1908, a youth movement spontaneously sprung up. Soon afterwards, the Scout Association was formed by B-P to give structure to the movement and to organize training, called Wood Badge, for adult leaders. B-P quickly realized that girls were also participating in the movement, so, with his sister Agnes and later his wife, Olave, the Girl Guides and the Guide Association were also founded and developed. Further, B-P, with the aid of his brother, Warrington, an avid sailor and aficionado of canoe sailing, founded the Sea Scouts. Guiding and Girl Scouting rapidly developed into a worldwide organization and is today the world's largest youth movement for girls. B-P is universally recognized as the founder of Scouting.
