Stowarzyszenie Harcerskie - scouting organisation founded in 1996 that continues work of male and female city’s central scout groups of ZHP (in Warsaw)

It is the only scout organisation in Poland where each scout can choose oath for his promise. One of them is a compulsory oath shared with other organisations; e.g., ZHP and ZHR. The second oath does not consist of any religious declaration but pledge strive for truth and justice perceived as universal values. Therefore, Stowarzyszenie Harcerskie is known to be open for unbelievers. However, it is openly admitted that Scouting and Guiding in Poland base on Christian values.

In Stowarzyszenie Harcerskie, there is about 400 members operating in scout teams on territory of Warsaw, Warka and Popław.
