Scouts’ Day: February 22

February 22nd is “World Scouts’ Day”.

Why was this day chosen?

This day is the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell, was a British soldier and founder of “Boy Scout”.

To commemorate this, the 1963 the World Scout Conference decided to make this day “World Scouts’ Day”.

Scouting is an activity to develop an international personality and leadership in a group.

It is mainly aimed at boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 18 through outdoor activities such as camping, woodcraft, first aid and hiking.

Robert Baden-Powell came up with this idea because of his experience in military operations in South Africa.
