Scouting Ireland is a voluntary, uniformed, non-formal educational movement for young people. The aim of Scouting is to encourage the Social, Physical, Intellectual, Character, Emotional, and Spiritual development of young people so that they may achieve their full potential and, as responsible citizens, to improve society. We do this through the Scout Method.
