Scout Sunday


Scout Sunday
Date
Share this event

The Boy Scouts of America have designated the Sunday preceding February 8, or February 8 if it is a Sunday, as Scout Sunday and the following Saturday is designated as Scout Sabbath. The day is meant to mark the founding of the Scouts in the United States. Observation varies by unit and locale. Scouts go to their places of worship in uniform and help with the service.

Scouting has been used by churches, synagogues, and many other religious organizations as part of their youth ministries. Approximately 50 percent of all Scouting units are chartered to religious groups. These observances offer an opportunity for congregations to honor Scouts and Scouters, as well as to learn more themselves about the value of Scouting as a youth program.


Prepared. For Life.
