Boy Scout Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on February 8th

Boy Scout Day celebrates the birthday of Scouting in America. On February 8, 1910, Chicago publisher William Dickson Boyce filed incorporation papers in the District of Columbia to create the Boy Scouts of America.

Scouting groups across the country celebrate this day. Often a cake will be served at the weekly meeting or on a campout. Scout Sunday, the Sunday nearest the 8th of February, will often be marked with a church service, followed by a pancake breakfast. 

Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts offer a tremendously valuable program of life skills and values for millions of boys. It has been popular ever since Lord Baden-Powell founded Boy Scouts in the early 1900s in Great Britain. The top award of Eagle Scout, is an accomplishment that reaps recognition, rewards, and benefits for a young man throughout his life.


Interesting Scouting Facts:

In 2004, there were 3,145,331 Boys in the scouting program, and 1,173,064 scout leaders. Source: BSA website.

British Lord Robert Baden-Powell founded the Boy Scouts in Britain. In 1907, he published the first scouting manual, titled Scouting for Boys.

Lord Robert Baden-Powell  was born on February 22, 1857.

Lady Olave Baden-Powell, founded Girl Guides. The wife of Lord Baden-Powell, she was also born on February 22 (1889).

The Boy Scout motto is "Be Prepared"

The Boy Scout slogan is "Do a good turn daily".

Where was Lord Baden-Powell buried? It comes a surprise to most, to learn that Lord Baden-Powell, and his wife are buried in Nyeri, Kenya, about three hours from Nairobi.

Deep thought for Today: How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?
