The Boy Scouts of America celebrate annually in the month of February the Anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scout program by Lord Baden Powell in England. Scout Sunday was added to the scout celebration around the mid-1940s. The Saturday following February 8th is Scout Sabbath.The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in church aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out parts of what they pledge each week. The Scout Law says that a "Scout is Reverent" and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their "Duty to God". These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith. All scouts and their families are welcome to participate in Scout Sunday on February 5th.
