Development of the Movement
The first Brownie packs and Guide companies were opened in elementary and intermediate schools in Muscat, the capital of Oman, in 1972. Guiding soon spread to other parts of the country, and the National Organization for Scouts and Guides was established by Royal Decree in 1975.
The Omani Scout and Guide Organizations constitute the National Organization for Scouts and Guides. The two wings operate independently, but both have their headquarters in the same building in Muscat.
