The Antigua and Barbuda Branch of The Scout Association is coeducational, with separate sections for boys and girls. Although Antigua and Barbuda is independent, Scouting is a section of the United Kingdom’s Scout Association. Scouting is active in most of Antigua and Barbuda’s villages, where Scouts learn the basic skills and practice them at an annual island-wide camp once a year. Scouts in Antigua and Barbuda have participated in many Caribbean camps and events.

The Scout emblem incorporates elements of the coat of arms of Antigua and Barbuda.

Scouting began in Antigua in April 1913 at Antigua Grammar School. Led by Richmond Wheeler and Samuel Branch, there were only 25 scouts at that time.
