The Carajás Scouts has a long history with the British and international community in São Paulo. The Carajás began with Cub Scout activities back in 1925 on the Avenida Paulista as the 1st Cub Pack and the 2nd Cub Pack of São Paulo, under the leadership of Miss Shaw, Eleanor Macintyre and Miss Winifred Tilley in 1925. On 13th January, 1928, at the British Chamber of Commerce, members of the British Community founded the Baden-Powell Boy Scout Association, which followed with the founding of the 1st English Speaking Boy Scouts of São Paulo Troop, under the leadership of Jimmy Macintyre and Geoffrey Sewell. After World War II this Group became known as the Carajás and was led by Toby Shellard. The history is detailed in Toby’s Carajás Memoir’s edited by the Group. The families of founding members are still active today!
As the second oldest scout Group in the State of São Paulo and the 6th in the country, Carajás leaders have always played a very important role within Brazilian Scouting, being a well regarded group within the UEB – União dos Escoteiros do Brasil. Toby Shellard, Paul Thomsen and Jonathan Govier have led the Carajás and Brazilian contingents to World Jamborees in Europe, North and South America, Australia and Asia. Participating in major world scout events is a long tradition and enables the Group to offer to its member’s life-time experiences not available in other organizations.
