The Asociación de Scouts de Guatemala is the national Scouting organization of Guatemala. Scouting was founded in Guatemala in 1920 and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1930. The association has 6,020 members (as of 2011).[1]

In 1974, Professor Armando Gálvez C. 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. Other recipients include Julio Montes T. in 1977.

The Scout Association is open to all young people both boys and girls. Its aim is to promote positive cultural and civic activities and moral standards through out-of-school educational programs.
