Scout Sunday

Scouting's Founder, Lord Baden Powell, knew that faith gives young people a road-map for life, and is a wise guide for thoughts and actions. Over 100 years later, we still believe this to be true.  It is our individual faith traditions that inspire us to look beyond ourselves turning our attention to helping others. Scout Sunday is a beautiful reminder to ground ourselves in faith and reverence, both in our personal lives and in BSA's daily mission to make the world a better place. The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 (Scouting Anniversary Day) as Scout Sunday.  However, each chartered organization can use either of two other options to celebrate this special day. *Units may adjust this date to best meet their needs.

  1. A specific Sunday to celebrate - In the instance of the United Methodist Church, Scout Sunday is celebrated on the second Sunday in February. 
  2. It also is permissible for a local church to celebrate on the Sunday most acceptable to the pastor and congregation.

*Scout Sabbath or Scout Shabbat - for Jewish Scout units, is always the Saturday after Scout Sunday. This year, it begins at sundown on Friday, Feb. 10 and continues into the next day. Scout Jumuah offers a chance to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting within the Muslim community. The National Association of Muslim Americans on Scouting has designated Feb. 10, 2017, to be Scout Jumuah.
