Who are we?

The Lebanese Scout Association was established in 1935 at the American University of Beirut. LSA is a non-religious, non-sectarian, volunteer-based association with groups located in various parts of the country operating out of social/civic clubs and leading schools across Lebanon. LSA is recognized as the appropriate provider of choice, of outdoor and non-formal education.
