Scout Sunday

Sunday, February 9, 2020 All Day
Recurs annually on the Second Sunday of February until 3/2/2030.
  • Holidays

The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 (Scouting Anniversary Day) as Scout Sunday, which is the primary date to recognize the contributions of young people and adults to Scouting. However, each chartered organization can use either of two other options to celebrate this special day.

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

The Scout units are urged to participate in the religious services. Scout Sunday is an opportunity for units can attend services in uniform, conduct a flag ceremony, speak about Scouting, present religious awards and/or formally thank the chartering organization for their support throughout the year, reserve pews, take an active participation in the service such as a prayer, request a notice in the church bulletin. Consider having a recruiting information table in the foyer or hospitality area. A Scout is Reverent.
