Scouting Fact

Scouting_for_boys_1_1908Robert Baden-Powell’s book “Scouting for Boys” has sold over 150 million copies since 1908. The book that started it all is the fourth bestselling book of all time. Only The Bible, The Koran and Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book have sold more copies!

Founders Day

February is a special month for Scouts and Girl Guides all across the world. Each of these Movements celebrate Feb. 22, the birthday of Scouts founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell and his wife,  Lady Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide. Whether it is known as Founder’s Day, Thinking Day, or plain old BP’s birthday it is a good time to take pause and reflect a little on Scouting.

In honour of this day I thought would share some wisdom of BP on Scouting. The message might be a hundred years old but it is still as relevant today as it was then!

Until next time…

Be safe, be prepared, and keep Scouting!
