Scout Sunday is Feb 7th

Update: Bryan on Scouting has a new article: Your complete guide


To commemorate the founding date of Scouting, February 8th, the preceding Sunday is designated as “Scout Sunday”, and the Saturday of that week is “Scout Sabbath”.

Observation varies by unit and locale.¹ In some congregations, the scout oath will be recited; some congregations will ask their scouts to attend in uniform. No matter how Scouts celebrate Scout Sunday and Scout Sabbath, all Scouters unite in lifelong religious reverence this month.²

Church bulletin programs are available at the Kansas City Scout Shop. To plan a commemoration for your place of worship, you may want to consider this article from scouting magazine:
