Scouts and scout do maybe not have the same meaning in belgium.
I understand club=scout (without a ending S and without an upercase)
as the "generic" term for any scout-like club
but club=scouts as in "Les Scouts" (the name in french) of a specific 
scout club.
outside belgium, I have not idea if club=scouts have the same meaning as 

so mayb we can extend club=scout scout=Chiro|Scouts|Guide|... (I have no 
idea about the english name of Chiro Guide Patro) and so on for every 
specific "sub-type" of scout-like club.

Chiro (and Scouts) is a name. did we need a club= value for every club 
name ? I don't think so.
Scouts and Guides are, for example, very close to each other that
there is a Scout and Guide Association that brings them together
