The Asociación de Scouts Dominicanos (Dominican Scout Association) is the national scouting organization of the Dominican Republic. Scouting came to the Dominican Republic in 1914, and the Asociación de Scouts Dominicanos was founded in 1920 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1930. It serves 1,278 Scouts of both sexes as of 2011.[1]

Scouts are active in community service, tree planting, conservation and pollution control, and are becoming active in environmental awareness.

Many Scouts, Rovers and Scout Leaders attend annual training courses in fire control and lifesaving conducted by the Fire Department.
