ScoutShop: everything that scouts need
The ScoutShop is the outdoor shop of Scouting Nederland. Scouts not located in the Netherlands can order from the ScoutShop as well.Click here to go to the international shop.
Scouting is a worldwide movement for boys and girls. Worldwide there are two organisations. The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts” (WAGGGS) is an organisation for girls. The World Organisation of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is the organisation for both boys and girls.
Because in the Netherlands, boys and girls play their games together in one group or even in the same section, Scouting Nederland is member of the WOSM as well the WAGGGS.
Scouting Nederland organises a large number of international events every year. Will we meet you at one of these fantastic events? Visit the eventcalendar for all our events.
