In the late 1940s, the Scouting movement was disbanded in Hungary and replaced by the "pioneer" movement, based on the Soviet model. In 1951, Ferenc Beodray and Ede Csaszar organized the first Hungarian Boy Scout Troop in the United States. In the same year the International Headquarters was moved from Germany to Garfield, New Jersey. There are troops and camps among Hungarian immigrants in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe and Australia.
