SCOUTING IN MACAU

SCOUT ASSOCIATION OF MACAU

 

Macau is a small territory under Portuguese administration which will be turned over to China in December 1999. The future of Scouting in Macau is uncertain after 1999.

Scouting in Macau began in 1991, while Portuguese Scouting was present for many years.

Macau has over 100,000 youth between the ages of 6 and 21, which gives the Scout Association much potential for membership.

Membership is unknown.

Program Sections:

Cub Scouts- 7 to 11

Scouts- 12 to 15

Rovers- 16 to 20


Scout Motto :

Be Prepared

Scout Oath:

Prometo pela minha honra por amar e servir fielmente a minha religiao e a minha terra, auxiliar o proximo, obedecer a Lei do Escoteiro.
