The União dos Escoteiros do Brasil (UEB, Union of Brazilian Scouts) is the national Scouting organization of Brazil. Scouting in Brazil was founded in 1910 and was among the charter members of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1922.[1] The União dos Escoteiros do Brasil itself was founded in 1924;[2] it has 53,055 members as of 2011.[3] The association is a member of the Comunidade do Escutismo Lusófono (Community of Lusophone Scouting).

Scouting in Brazil is very popular in cities and suburban areas. Scouts from Brazil attend world and regional events in large numbers. They were well represented at the 1998 World Jamboree with 3,000 participants.
