The creation of the Boy Scouts can be traced back to a 20th century British Army officer, Robert Stephenson Smyth Baden-Powe. While stationed in India he became aware that his men had little to no survival skills. While abroad, he authored a guide book that would later become a handbook for thousands of young Boy Scouts in Europe.
It wasn’t long after that the Boy Scouts organization would move to America. An American business man, William D. Boyce, was lost on a foggy road in England and was given help by a young Boy Scout. When the boy refused payment, on the basis that he was an honorable Boy Scout, the business man became intrigued.
Boyce later met with Baden-Powe and learned about his association. Boyce left Europe with plenty of infomation and ideas. And so, on February 8, 1910, Boyce incorporated the Boy Scouts of America.
In 1907 The Scout Association was created in the UK, by Robert Baden-Powell, after which in 1910 The Boy Scout Association was founded. In 2009 the Scouts had 390901 young members and 91545 adult members. Today the Chief Scout is Bear Grylls, known from Man vs. Wild.
