Geocache Description:

This is the third cache in this series to show just how many scouts we have in Australia

My kids are part of this great movement and I am a leader as well. Some of these kids have shown an interest in geocaching so why not help them participate.


Baden-Powell was encouraged to set down his views on how he would apply Scouting to the training of boys. He first conducted an experimental camp in 1907 on Brownsea Island off the Dorset coast of the UK. With some 20 boys from all walks of life and suitable adult leaders, Baden-Powell taught the boys what he meant by Scouting. They lived in tents, cooked their own food and learnt many valuable skills through games.

1 August 1907 is regarded as the beginning of the Scout Movement worldwide.


The camp was a great success and proved Baden-Powell's ideas, so he tackled the task of writing down his experience in a book. Scouting for Boys was first published in fortnightly parts, beginning 15 January 1908. Every issue sold out as soon as it hit the news stands, despite the cover price of 4d which was expensive at the time. In fact, Scouting for Boys ranks fourth in the best-selling books of the 20th Century after the Bible, the Koran and Mao's Little Red Book.


Every other Wednesday until the end of March, boys (and girls) all over England eagerly awaited the next issue of Scouting for Boys.
