What is Scout Sunday?
“The BSA’s Calendar of Religious Dates lists Feb. 10, 2019, as “Scout Sunday, interfaith.” It lists Feb. 17, 2019, as “Scout Sunday, United Methodist.”
But those are just guidelines. The BSA says a local church may celebrate “on the Sunday most acceptable to the pastor and congregation.” So check with your chartered organization representative or faith leader.
Depending on your faith organization, Scout Sunday could be held any Sunday in February. It could be Feb. 3, Feb. 10, Feb. 17 or even Feb. 24.
In the past, Scout Sunday was always held on the Sunday before the birthday of the BSA on Feb. 8. Realizing that each chartered organization has a unique schedule of worship, the BSA no longer uses that guideline.
