National Boy Scouts Day

National Boy Scouts Day is a holiday that commemorates the anniversary of the filing of the letters of incorporation for this organization. The Boy Scouts of America have been shaping the character of boys across the country by teaching them survival skills, performing good deeds for those around them, and helping children develop strong leadership qualities. The Boy Scout movement originally began in 1908 in Great Britain when it was created by Lieutenant General Robert S.S. Baden-Powell, but it was William Dickson Boyce who founded the Boy Scouts of America in 1910.
