How Geocaching Works

This is the fourth 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.
The Movement is born.
It was suggested that boys form themselves into Patrols within other organisations but boys didn't want to be school-Scouts, cadet-Scouts or brigade-Scouts, they simply wanted to be Scouts. Long before the last instalment of Scouting for Boys had hit the book stands, Scout Patrols and Troops had magically appeared all over Britain. Baden-Powell finally bowed to the inevitable and accepted that Scouting would have to become a Movement in its own right. Two years later Baden-Powell retired from the army as a General to devote his life to this new Movement called Scouting. A rally at the Crystal Palace, London, drew together 10,000 boys. Scouting expands and grows
The Girl Guides were formed in 1910 by Baden-Powell's sister, Agnes. In quick succession came the Sea Scout Branch in the same year, Wolf Cubs in 1916, Rover Scouts in 1918 and the Special Test (now "Extension") Department in 1926. The Group system of Cub Scouts, Scouts and Rovers under the leadership of the Group Scoutmaster was established in 1927, Deep Sea Scouts in 1928, Air Scouts in 1941 and Senior Scouts in 1946 (now known as Venturer Scouts).
Meanwhile Scouting spread to Australia, New Zealand and India in 1908 and other countries followed shortly after. In 1909 Chile was the first country outside the British Empire to take up Scouting, followed closely by France, the Scandinavian countries and the United States in 1910. By 1937 over two and a half million Scouts from nearly fifty countries were affiliated with the International Bureau which was set up to safeguard Scouting and to prevent control drifting into the hands of the purely religious, political or military bodies.
