The newsgroup is for discussion of all matters to do with the youth development programme known generically as Scouting and Guiding, as practised in the UK, and for discussions on both the aim and the method of the Scout and Guide Movements in the UK, including the exchange of programme ideas and practical information on campsites, etc.

The terms 'Scouting' and 'Guiding' refer to the programme which follows the principles laid down by Sir Robert Baden-Powell in 'Scouting for Boys' in 1908.
