The idea of “Scout Scarf Day” on 1 st August each year is that all active and former scouts are requested to wear their scout scarfs in public to make the “Spirit of Scouting” visible: Once a Scout – Always a Scout!
The date of the event commemorates the very first Scout Camp on Brownsea Island in 1907. Whilst the scarf is only a symbol it is a strong symbol for the Scout Promise and for our mission to leave the world as a bit better place than we found it.
So why not wear your necker on the day and upload posts of where you have worn it to;
Instagram: #scoutscarfday and tag @northyorkshirescouts and @scoutscarfday
Facebook: #scoutscarfday and the @NorthYorkshireScouts and @Scout.Scarf.Day pages
A full advert to be shared with your groups can be downloaded from the District Resources page.
