In G.I. Joe (Marvel Comics), they had the Cobra Scouts. Don't remember the issue, but probably before #50, Cobra Commander's son is tricked by his Lieutenants into trying to assasinate him. Plan didn't work out. (Source: Paul Romain)

MERCER MAYER PICTURE BOOKS
Mercer Mayer has a series of picture books featuring the character of
"Little Critter" (an animal of some sort). Just saw one: "Little Critter
at Scout Camp" that shows him in a blue, sort-of-Cub uniform. (Source: Mark Arend)
STAR TREK MEMORABILIA
I finally got time to look in my Star Trek - Vulcan materials.
Unfortunately, I haven't updated it since mid 1994, so any reference
since then isn't reflected.
Still the only catalogued reference to the Scouts was --
Federation Interstellar Scouts motto: Be Prepared
Mentioned on pg 60 of CORONA by Greg Bear; c Apr 1984. (Source: Cheryl Singhal)
Cheryl later wrote to Scouts-L with additional information as follows:

'But, Keptin, Scouting was _inwented_ by a leetle boy from Leningrad',
Thanks! No wonder no one remembered it -- that book was so
funny/humourous lots of good stuff slid by while one held one's sides!
