Les Scouts du Cameroun is the national Scouting organization of Cameroon. Scouting in Cameroon was started in 1937. The association was founded in 1973 through the merger of five predecessors. Cameroonese Scouting became a member of the World Organization of the Scout Movement in 1971. The coeducational Scouts du Cameroun has 4,561 members as of 2008.[1]

Scouting in Cameroon is noted for its emphasis on community service, good citizenship and many conservation projects.

In 1981, Solomon T. Muna 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.


The organization is divided in four sections according to age:

  • Louveteaux (Cub Scouts) - ages 6 to 11

  • Scouts aînés (Senior Scouts) - ages 15 to 19
