The History of Scouting in Belize




The Scout Association of Belize exists by virtue of the Scout Association of Belize Act, 1987 passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate of Belize and assented to by the Governor-General of Belize on 25 January 1988.

Prior to that date, on 15 December 1987, having complied with the requirements of the Constitution of the World Organization, the World Scout Committee granted recognition to The Scout Association of Belize as a member organization and so registered the Association with the World Scout Bureau.  On September 18, 1988 the Interamerican Scout Committee certified The Scout Association of Belize as a member organization of the Interamerican Scout Conference.
