In 1920, Det Danske Spejderkorps (DDS) was among the founding members of the Boy Scouts' International Conference. The KFUM-Spejderne i Danmark (KFUM-S) gained an independent title of membership in 1924. In 1961, the World Scout Conference changed the statutes of WOSM requesting only one member per country. Thus, DDS and KFUM-S founded the Fællesrådet for Danmarks Drengespejdere which overtook the WOSM membership on April 23, 1962.
Member organizations of the federation are:
- Det Danske Spejderkorps
- KFUM-Spejderne i Danmark
- Danske Baptisters Spejderkorps (associate member)

Jamboree Denmark 2012
A Jamboree took place near Holstebro in July 2012, run jointly by member organizations of the FDD as well as the Joint Committee of Girl Guides in Denmark, namely De grønne pigespejdere, KFUM-Spejderne, Det Danske Spejderkorps, Danske Baptisters Spejderkorps and the Dansk Spejderkorps Sydslesvig. Over 37,000 participants were involved.
Danske Spejderkorps and Dansk Spejderkorps Sydslesvig
The Dansk Spejderkorps Sydslesvig logo is composed of a Scout fleur-de-lis and a Guide trefoil. The colours of the logo are blue and yellow with a red background, the line drawing is white. The blue and yellow colours symbolize the Schleswig colours, while the red background and white line drawing symbolizes the Danish colours, namely red and white. The Det Danske Spejderkorps logo is dark blue with the same line drawing in white. Before 2003 it had the trefoil in light blue and the fleur-de-lis in yellow on a dark blue background.
KFUM-Spejderne i Danmark and KFUM-Skotarnir i Føroyum
The KFUM-Spejderne i Danmark logo is composed of Scouting elements, a fleur-de-lis and YMCA elements, a triangle shape. The triangle symbolizes the Holy Trinity, which is part of the YMCA's Christian work. The triangle also symbolizes the development of a healthy "body, mind and spirit"  Before 2002 the organisation had a more standard YMCA-Scouting logo, a green conventional fleur-de-lis on a red triangle, much like the KFUM-Skotarnir i Føroyum still has. However, the KFUM-Skotarnir i Føroyum logo has a black fleur-de-lis in a particular design.
Danske Baptisters Spejderkorps
The Danske Baptisters Spejderkorps is composed of a Scout fleur-de-lis, a Guide trefoil and a cross symbolizing the Christian background.
The Skótalið Frelsunarhersins logo is based on the historic logos of the Salvation Army Life-Saving Scouts and Life-Saving Guards and is except for the text identical to the logo of the Norwegian Salvation Army Scouts (Frelsesarmeens speidere). It is shows in red a lifebuoy with in the centre the letters FH for Frelsens Hær (The Salvation Army) and on the lifebuoy the motto "To Save and to Serve" written in Faroese language. The symbol in the loops are: bible for caring for the soul, lamp for caring for others, eye for caring for the mind and gymmnastics clubs for caring for the body.
