Lord Baden Powell in 1907 organized an experimental camp on Brownsea Island in Pearl harbour, England for a group of 20 boys. This was not a scout camp. But it was the birth of the Boy Scout Movement, which has now spread all over the world. Dharmaraja College did not take a long time to follow his footsteps and in 1913 1st Kandy Dharmaraja Scout troop was formed.

When considering scouting activities the first great achievement was its remarkable 95-year history in the local and international scouting arena. They won the “king’s flag” for three consecutive years are 1917, 1918 and 1919. Also Dharmaraja scouts won the “Brigadier Hackett Thompson Championship” for all-round excellence at the first ever all round rally held at the Colombo Race Course in 1917. Henry Thenuwara of Dharmaraja scouts group was the sole Ceylon representative at the 1st Imperial Jamboree held in England in 1920 at the Crystal Palace.
