The Asociación de Scouts del Perú (ASP, Scout Association of Peru) is the national Scouting organization of Peru. Peruvian Scouting was founded in 1911 and was among the charter members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922. It has 4,852 members (as of 2011).[1]

In 1973, Dr. Elías Mendoza Habersperger was awarded the Bronze Wolf, the only distinction of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, awarded by the World Scout Committee for exceptional services to world Scouting.

Vocational training is provided in a number of fields. There are many community services and Scouts work with the Red Cross in some of their programs. Conservation programs are stressed. Scouts have the opportunity to visit jungle villages and learning about the conservation of nature first hand. Tree planting is done by many groups. Scouts work to restore and maintain ancient Inca sites such as Machu Picchu and Cuzco. A number of Scout projects deal with increasing food production and improving nutrition in communities.

From 2013 the organization uses the WOSM brand for its logo, like the South African Scout Association logo but with "Perú" added. The old emblem is still used as Scout section badge and features a stylized Inti, the Andean sun-god.
