162 BP Day Celebration at Batticaloa Scout District

Scouts’ Day or Guides’ Day is a generic term for special days observed by members of the Scouting movement throughout the year. Some of these days have religious significance, while others may be a simple celebration of Scouting. Typically, it is a day when all members of Scouting will re-affirm the Scout Promise.

Worldwide in nearly all Scout associations, Founders’ Day is celebrated on 22 February, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell, 1st Baron Baden-Powell (born in 1857), the founder of Scouting, and coincidentally also of his wife Olave Baden-Powell (born in 1889).

162nd Birth Anniversary of Lord Baden Powell celebrations organised by the Batticaloa Scout District at Scouts Statue at Batticaloa.
