Scout Sabbath, Feb. 6 & Scout Sunday, Feb.8
Scout Sabbath is Friday, February 6th and Scout Sunday is February 8th.  Both days recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting, and mark the February, 1910 founding of the Scout movement in the United States.  Scouts and Scouters are encouraged to wear their Class A uniform to the house of worship of their choice, and can contact their house of worship to see if Scout Sabbath or Scout Sunday will be celebrated at a specific time.
