The Government of Karnataka introduced the Scout & Guides to the colleges from the year 2014. The girls above 16 year who are enrolled for this group are known as rangers and the boys are called rovers.

It is the biggest and most successful youth organisation with thousands of boys and girls enjoying an almost vast range of activities.

As a Scout they will receive expert instructions in a wide variety of outdoor skills and can deal with life’s emergencies.

Scouting began in 1907. Robert Baden-Powell, Lieutenant General in British Army, form the Scouting movement. Scouting for boys first appeared in January 1908. The programme was first focused on boys 11-18 then as the movement grew the younger boys and girls are also included. Scouts are provided with the opportunity for personal growth through challenging, interesting activities that meet the needs of boys and girls. Scouting encourages hobbies, interests and skills to develop leadership and sense of achievement.

Scout- Rangers and Rovers (girls and boys above 16 years respectively) are exposed to huge range of activities based on adventure and personal interest like performance, arts, bush, survival skills, tying and using knots, learn about water safety, camping and cooking.Aim of the scout: The development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as responsible citizens and members of local, national and international community.
