Boy Scouts originally denoted the organization that developed and rapidly grew up during 1908 in the wake of the publication by Lieutenant-General Robert Baden-Powell of his book Scouting for Boys. A Boy Scout originally referred to a male youth between the age of 12 and 17 who participated in the program. The program was soon expanded to involve younger children as Cub Scouts, age 8 to 11. Today, many national scouting programs also have a program for young children aged 6 to 8 years. There is also a young-adult program aimed at 18 to 25-year-olds. This program was originally called Rovering but now goes under various names as established by national Scouting organizations.
