Help - "Scouting around the World"

Jan requested help for a group of Scouts looking for information about
Scouting in other countries, specifically in England, Scotland, New
Zealand, Australia, and Korea.
This would be a great opportunity to guide these Scouts to some of the
great international Scouting resources that are available on the Internet.
Have them start by visiting the World Scout Bureau's list of National Scout
Associations with links to the association web sites at
http://www.scout.org/wso/links.html You can link from there to the web
sites of the national Scout associations of United Kingdom (for England and
Scotland), New Zealand, Australia, Korea, and many other countries.
They might also want to visit home pages of individual units in these
countries. To find those, visit the InterNetional Scouting and Guiding
Pages at http://inter.scoutnet.org/ , link to "Scouting and Guiding pages
(by country)", and select the country you are interested in.
For other ideas, go ot our "Troop 180 Guide to International Scouting on
the Internet" at http://www.msu.edu/~rasche/scout/trp180/intergd.htm
