This is why there are hardly any Scouts with a migration background

It’s a wish that doesn’t come true: Scout wants to become more multicultural. In early 2014, representatives of cantonal associations appealed to the press. They hoped to counteract the decline in membership at that time. Today in the year of the huge Confederate camp at Gomes VS, registration numbers are on the rise again. But the new Scouts also come mainly from middle-class families with no migration background.
