Scouting Sunrise Day
The day is a unique opportunity to show the social force and enormity of Scouting in the world. It will be a very special moment when Scouts join together on 1 August 2020 in a spirit of friendship and peace, proud of their heritage, showcasing modern & Digital Scouting and most importantly, looking forward to the next era of Scouting to benefit more young people and communities. On this day, it is hoped that all the Scouts will be warmly encouraged to join in the celebrations, renewing their support and commitment to Scouting.
The day is also a great opportunity to introduce more Young People to Scouting. Parents of Scouts, brothers and sisters, should be invited to participate in the activities, as well as those not yet involved in Scouting. The Celebrations can support the development and growth at local, Province level, encouraging young people to join, and motivating adults to give their time and support to Scouting.
Scouting Sunrise is a day to reinforce our strategic priorities, of the worldwide Movement, and also at local, district, province and national levels. It is a day demonstrate our commitment to youth involvement, equal opportunities, volunteering and our image of a Movement working to create a better world.
Scout Scarf Day
The idea of “Scout Scarf Day” on August 1 is that all the scout members are requested to wear their scout scarf in public to make the “Spirit of Scouting” visible: Once a Scout – Always a Scout! The date of the event commemorates the very first Scout Camp on Brown Sea Island in 1907. Of course, the scarf is only a symbol but a strong symbol for the scout promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better a place than we had found it.
