The number of Czech scouts has increased by about one third since 2006 to over 60,500, according to the data released by the Czech Scouting Movement Junák on Saturday. The most significant increase, by about 2,700, was recorded last year.
There are currently 2,148 scouting clubs all over the Czech Republic. The highest number of scouts is in the South Moravian region, followed by Central Bohemia, and Prague.
The Czech scouting movement was established in 1912 and was banned three times during their history, first by the Nazis and then twice by the Communist regime.
