World Scout Scarf Day is celebrated on 1 August every year and commemorates the very first Scout Camp held on Brownsea Island in 1907.
Scout Scarf Day is a call to all past and present Scouts to wear their scarves in public with pride. Some of our Cubs and Scouters represented today by wearing their scarves to school and work. Check out the pictures below. Scouts South Africa runs a great competition called “Scout Scarf Selfie Competition!” If you took a photo of yourself and/or your friends wearing their scarves in a public place today, send them to Scouts South Africa and you will stand the chance to WIN some great Scouting prizes! Read more about it here.
Scout Scarf Day is celebrated around the world. Not only is the scarf a symbol of the group and the legacy that B-P left us, but it is also a reflection of the Scout promise and the Scout movement as a whole. Once a Scout, always a Scout!
