About This Item

1st New Zealand Scout Camp 1908

Scouting

In 1907 Robert Baden-Powell held the first Scout camp at Brownsea Island, Dorset, and established the movement formally the next year. Lieutenant Colonel David Cossgrove wrote to Baden-Powell, who he had served with during the South African War, asking for permission to organise scouting in New Zealand. The first troop was established at Kaiapoi, Canterbury, in July 1908 – one of the first outside of Britain. Scouting grew quickly into the country’s largest youth organisation, aided by schoolteachers, churchmen and civic leaders supportive of youth citizenship training.

The Scouts’ motto was ‘Be prepared’. Baden-Powell’s father was an Anglican priest and ‘the Scout promise’, which was the basis of membership, required religious belief. Scouts carried staves – an uncomplimentary early term for them was ‘broomstick warriors’. Their first hats were ex-military cadet ones, but these were soon replaced with felt ‘lemon-squeezers’ as worn by Baden-Powell. Uniforms were khaki and a cotton scarf was worn. Initially this was secured with a knot, but from the 1920s it was threaded through a piece of tubing called a woggle. In the 1960s the lemon-squeezer hat was replaced by a beret.

 

I first logged this tag on 1/08/2013 which is recognized as the birthday of Scouting around the world. 

In that year there were 15,049 Youth members 5,438 Adult volunteers in NZ.
