104 and still going strong

Today is the 104th Anniversary of Scouting!  Well on or about.  Scouting began with 20 boys and an experimental camp in 1907. It was held during the first nine days of August in 1907 at Brownsea Island, near Poole in Dorset, England.   So generally this is considered the Anniversary of Scouting.
It is a great feeling to be part of such a great organization!
Today we are part of 30 million Scouts and Scouters in 161 countries that make up the World Organization of the Scouting Movement.  The newest member, Belarus, joined on 5 September 2010.
In the United States we have about 5,970,203 Scouts and Scouters.  Scouting is growing and going strong!
So Happy Anniversary Scouting!

Have a Great Scouting Day!
