The Asociación de Scouts de México, Asociación Civil (ASMAC) is a Scouting association in Mexico. ASMAC was formed in 1920  and became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement on August 26, 1926. It was registered as a Civil Association by the Mexican government on 24 February 1943. ASMAC claimed 33,509 members (as of 2011). The ASMAC headquarters are located in Mexico City.
Juan Lainé served on the Boy Scouts International Committee of the Boy Scouts International Conference from 1947 to 1949 and again from 1951 to 1957. In 1961, Lainé was awarded the Bronze Wolf, the only distinction of the Boy Scouts International Conference, awarded by the Boy Scouts International Committee for exceptional services to world Scouting. Other ASMAC recipients include Macias Valadez in 1971, and Jorge Toral A. in 1975.
Groups registered at ASMAC follow a development program called ENPE (Esquema Nacional de Programa Educativo). The highest rank is the Caballero Aguila, literally Eagle Knight. The name comes from the ancient Aztec army. This program divides Scouts, depending on their ages, into the following sections:
|Name||Ages (Years)||Uniform color|
|Rover Clan (Clan de Rovers)||18-22||Red|
|Scouter (Scouter or Dirigente)||22+||Grey|
Largest fleur de lis in the world
A Scout event held each year since 2000, originally organized to promote the 11th World Scout Moot that was held that year in Mexico. More than 10,000 Scouts from all Mexico come to the main square of Mexico City and draw a gigantic fleur de lis, the emblem of the WOSM. It is drawn on a 10,000 m2 area, and filled up with aluminum cans.
In 2007, the year of the World Scouting Centenary, a dove was incorporated into the original design as a symbol of Scouting as a universal movement of peace. In 2007 the Flor de Liz mas Grande del Mundo was one of Mexico's gifts of peace.
Meztitla Scout Camp School
Meztitla was originally property of Dr. Paul E. Loewe, but in 1956 he donated the first lands for the campsite. The name Meztitla is a word derived from Náhuatl, which literally means "place near the moon", due to ancient Aztec cave painting which depicts the moon, inside a cave on a hill in the surroundings.
