Boy Scout, was founded by Lord Baden Powell in 1907, and became official in 1908, because of the book “Scouting For Boys”. The First Rally scout was in 1909, in The Crystal Palace, London. In the rally, there were 10.000 boy scouts and some “Unoffcial Girl Scouts”. Agnes Baden Powell, Lord Baden Powell’s sister, made Girl Scout Official in 1910. Boy Scout was first established in 1908 by the British Empire in many regions, like, Gibraltar, Malta, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
