Next Sunday, International Skating and Fun Center in Cherry Hill, New Jersey will be celebrating Boy Scout day! If your troop leader signs you up your troop can get free skating on February 7th. We thought we would delve into the history of the boy scouts a little bit more, as it is a rich and exciting one!
When were the boy scouts founded?
The boy scouts were first founded in America by William Dickson Boyce in 1910, two short years after Lord Baden-Powel founded them in Great Britain. As it states in the boy scout code, everyone should try and do a good deed on this day in honor of the founding.
How do the actual scouts celebrate?
The boy scout troops themselves celebrate by incorporating religious tones and attending church together on Scout Sunday, after which they have breakfast together. Many troops take the Sunday closest to Boy Scout Day to get together and play sports, go hunting, or just generally spend time enjoying each other’s company.
How is ISC Cherry Hill honoring this tradition?
At ISC Cherry Hill, we believe in and support the boy scout code. We feel it is an excellent organization promoting good morals and values to the youth of America today. We are holding a Boy Scout Skate on Scout Sunday in which all troops that sign up can get free skating!
