Boy scouts have been a part of the United States since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Boy scouts have greatly improved the lives of others by instilling good morals and life skills needed to succeed in life.
However, not many outside of boy scouts know or understand what boy scouts can do for their communities. Boy Scout Anniversary Week dedicated this time towards raising awareness of the importance of boy scouts, raise awareness of the impact that boy scouts have, and commemorate the founding of Boy Scouts of America.
History of Boy Scout Anniversary Week
Boy Scout Anniversary Week help councils and districts build awareness of the importance of boy scouts, launch financial campaigns for growth, support their Boy Scout members, and create fundraising events to help continue the long-lasting tradition of Boy Scouts in the United States.
The celebration usually begins with Scout Sunday and ends with Scout Sabbath. This week marks the beginnings of Boy Scouts of America, one of the largest scouting and youth organizations that aims to instill ethical life choices, survival skills, and responsible citizenship throughout their lives.
Originally, the Boy Scouts of America, which was founded in 1910, began as a way to instill individualism and patriotism, as, during that time, families that lived in the country started moving into the cities for work.
Throughout this period, as many began to complain about the decline in American manhood, President Theodore Roosevelt ardently supported the organization in its beginnings, which helped the organization in becoming an international organization reaching all corners of the world.
People all over celebrate Boy Scout Anniversary Week by learning about the founders of Boy Scouts, teach those outsides of the organization what boy scouts do for people everywhere, and instill values that can last throughout generations.
