World Scarf Day – 1st August 2016

Scouts have several holidays, that help them promote scouting in different countries around the world. World Scout Scarf Day is one of these holidays, that is annually celebrated on the 1st August. Promotion of World Scout Scarf Day began in 2007 by a campaign on Facebook. Every former Scout worldwide is encouraged to wear his or her neckerchief in public on August 1, that would be a symbol of the Scout promise and the spirit of Scouting. The date of the event commemorates the very first Scout Camp on Brownsea Island in 1907.
