WikiProject Report: Scouting

WikiProject Scouting is a WikiProject that is dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to Scouting, encompassing "any movement or organization that uses the Scout method", including, but not limited to Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Girl Guides, and Royal Rangers. The project was founded by its current head coordinator, Rlevse (talk · contribs), on 19 January 2006. Since then, it has grown to 136 active members and 44 inactive members. The Scouting project also has 15 translators, who handle requests for Scouting-related articles to be translated into other languages.
