2018 Scout-Guide Week
February 28, 2018
For more than four decades, Scouts and Guides have celebrated Scout-Guide Week nationwide. We celebrate this week to honour the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell (Feb. 22), who, in 1907 started the Scouting Movement, and his wife, Lady Olave Baden-Powell, the World Chief Guide. This is a time of celebration for Scouts Canada and Girl Guides of Canada – a time when two world-wide youth Movements honour their heritage and a time to recognize the good work both Movements do for the community. Across Canada celebrations include camps, expeditions and mall displays, special banquets and parades.
