Grønlands Spejderkorps

Grønlands Spejderkorps

Grønlands Spejderkorps ( _kl. Kalaallit Nunaanni Spejderit Kattufiat) is the youngest of the Danish Scout associations, founded on February 2, 1973. Previously Greenlandic boys had belonged to one of the Danish Scout associations and girls belonged to one of the corresponding Danish Guide associations. Scouting in Greenland started in 1943, and Guiding began in 1950. "Grønlands Spejderkorps", however, is a coeducational organization, and has been recognized as an associate member of the Fællesrådet for Danmarks Drengespejdere since 1976 and of the Pigespejdernes Fællesråd Danmark since 1981. Initial grants from the Grønlands Landsting helped the fledgling organization. Today, the association has about 500 members.

Greenlandic Scouting focuses upon local conditions, skills and handicrafts, sea and mountaineering activities and subzero camping, as well as nature conservation, of particular importance on the Arctic island. The limited means of public transport render a camp for all members impracticable, so camps are instead arranged at district level.
