In the french scouting, there is 5 movements :

  • les Éclaireuses et Éclaireurs de France (EEDF), non religious
  • les Éclaireuses et Éclaireurs Unionistes de France (EEUdF), protestants
  • les Éclaireuses et Éclaireurs Israélites de France (EEIF), jew
  • les Scouts et Guides de France (SGDF), catholics
  • les Scouts Musulmans de France (SMF), musulmans

In france, there are more than 65 000 scouts...

I'll speak more of the SGDF, my movement....

Scouts et Guides de France (Scouts and Guides of France, SGdF) is the largest Scouting and Guiding association in France. It was formed on 1st September 2004 from the merger of two Roman Catholic Scouting organizations: the Guides de France (founded in 1923) and the Scouts de France (SdF, founded on 25 July 1920). Through Scoutisme Français, SGdF is a member of both WOSM and WAGGGS.
SGdF claims 62,000 youth members and 14,000 volunteers in 924 local groups.[1] It is active in the rebirth of Scouting in Ukraine and Belarus and strengthening Scouting in French Polynesia.

The sections are :

  • Sarabandes (Beavers): ages 6 to 8
  • Louveteaux/Louvettes/Jeannettes (Cubs): ages 8 to 12
  • Scouts/Scoutes/Guides: ages 11 to 15
  • Pionniers/Pionnières/Caravelles (Explorers): ages 14 to 17
  • Compagnons/JEM (Rovers): ages 17 to 21
  • Mousses (Sea Scouts): ages 14 to 17
  • Arc-en-ciel (Rainbow): handicapped division

The Scout motto is Toujours Prêt, Always Prepared in French.
