The Association of Scouts of Bosnia and Herzegovina has renewed its membership in the World Scout Scout Organization in 1999. The desire of the Scout Association is to be an organization that will help a young man choose their own path by discovering and experiencing the world through life in nature.
Scouts, of course, still exist today in all the republics of the other Yugoslavia. With their activity and work, they still attract attention, though not as massive as ever.
The famous poet MIROSLAV ANTIĆ – MIKA (1932-1986), a longtime member of the scouting organization, told reporters on one occasion:
Perhaps no psychologist will fail to explain why the scouts are good people. There are no rules, no prescriptions, there is an air condition, something that forms both consciousness and conscience, some warmth, some beautiful light in the eyes. Being a scout, it means to be healthy, plain, just, dreamer, poet, and drug. In this general quest for existence, in these excesses, both young and old, the scouts are the white, beautiful and pure side of the youth.
Today, the Scout Association in Bosnia and Herzegovina consists of 3 Alliances: Federation of Scouters of Federation BiH, Federation of Scouts of Republika Srpska and Scout of Brcko District.
