History of scouting in Indonesia began in 1912  with the establishment of Nederlansche Padvinders Organisatie (NPO) branch by PJ. Smith. In a short time, some Dutch  scouting organizations arised in Indonesia, which finally united in the Nederlands-Indische Vereeniging Padvinders (NIPV) in 1914. Among the leaders of the Indonesian nationalist movement, the idea of Baden Powell in his book "Scouting for Boys" was very interesting. Through scouting, they wanted to form a good Indonesian youth as well as cadres of national movement in struggling for independence.

In1916, Javaansche Padvinders Organisatie (JPO) as the first regularly organized Indonesia's national scouting founded at the initiative of SP Mangkunegara VII in Solo. After that, among scouting movements set up by various organizations were Nationale Padvinderij by Budi Utomo, Hizbul Wathan by Mhammadiyah, Syarikat Islam Afdeling Padvinderij (SIAP) by Syarikat Islam, Nationale Islamietische Padvinderij (NATIPIJ) by Jong Islamieten Bond (JIB), and Indonesich Nationale Padvinders Organisatie (INPO) by Pemuda Indonesia.

National scouting at that time became one of vehicles for youth education to enhance character as well as increase knowledge and skills in carrying out the ideals of the indepdence of Indonesia. At present, Pramuka as the national scouting movement in Indonesia is part of national education, aimed at nurturing young people in fully achieving spiritual, social, intellectual and physical potential.
