Balochistan Scout Association (BSA) (Previously known as Balochistan Boys Scout Association) is a provincial Scouting organisation of Balochistan in Pakistan and geographically exists in all the 30 districts of Balochistan, with more than 75,000 scout volunteers[1] . It is affiliated with World Organization of the Scout Movement through Pakistan Boy Scouts Association[2] . Scouting in Balochistan started in 1943 when a Scout Unit of Islamia High School presented the Guard of honour to Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on his arrival at Quetta. Since then this organisation is active as a volunteer organization and works for character building of youth and for the welfare of the society. The BSA is a corporate body which is not controlled by any department and has NO connection in any way, with the armed forces of the country or any departments of the government.


Scouting is a global movement started in Britain by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907. The Scouting in Balochistan can be traced back to 1938 when a piece of land was acquired for the purpose of scout training headquarters. In 1943 a permanent Scout unit of Islamia High School presented the Guard of honour to Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah on his arrival at Quetta in 1943[3] . The Governor General of Balochistan Sir Obroy Metcof inaugurated the Balochistan Scouts Association (BSA) Headquarter in November 1943[4]. After the creation of Pakistan, Balochistan Scout Association became the provincial branch of Pakistan Boy Scouts Association.
