The Scout Association of Serbia has a tradition of more than a century. Only four years after the founding of the World Scout Movement in 1907. in London, a scout movement was founded in Serbia as well. The father of scouting in Serbia is considered to be Dr. Milos Dj. Popovic, who founded the first scout company in Belgrade in May 1911, following the example of the scout movement in England, which by that time had already gained followers in other European countries. This event is considered to be the beginning of a scout organization in Serbia, which has developed and progressed since then until today.
For more than 100 years of existence and work of the Association, nine Festivals of the Association of Scouts of Serbia were held, in which over 20 thousand scouts and mountaineers participated.
