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.

JOIN US AT THE 75TH LINCOLN PILGRIMAGE WEEKEND ON APRIL 24- 26 AND SHARE THE LIFE AND LEGACY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN WITH YOUR SCOUTS. LINCOLN WAS NOT ONLY ONE OF OUR GREATEST PRESIDENTS, BUT ALSO A MAN OF INTEGRITY AND A ROLE MODEL FOR OUR YOUTH.

Are you tired of doing the same old routine? Did you know that the Scouts BSA operates 420 Scout camps, 60 council high-adventure programs, and three national high-adventure bases? Each site offers opportunities for a variety of summer camp staff jobs. Most Scout camp staff members are at least 16 years of age, but some camps have a few select positions for youth who are a year or so younger. The national high-adventure programs employ young people who are at least 18 years of age. The Boy Scouts of America is an equal opportunity employer that hires both females and males, as well as people of all ages and ethnic groups, diverse cultures, and mixed abilities.

Merit Badges and Training Opportunities


There is more to merit badges than simply providing opportunities to learn skills. There is more to them than an introduction to lifetime hobbies, or the inspiration to pursue a career—though these invaluable results occur regularly. It all begins with a Scout’s initial interest and effort in a merit badge subject, followed by a discussion with the unit leader or designated assistant, continues through meetings with a counselor, and culminates in advancement and recognition. It is an uncomplicated process that gives a Scout the confidence achieved through overcoming obstacles. Social skills improve. Self-reliance develops. Examples are set and followed. And fields of study and interest are explored beyond the limits of the school classroom.

Merit Badge Days are hosted by Scouts BSA Troops or BSA councils/ districts to provide Scouts with an activity-filled day combining hands-on activities, question and answer sessions, and fun projects to help Scouts earn merit badges.
