The Scout movement was started by Lord Baden Powell in England in 1907. 

The founding of the Boy Scouts in the United States is celebrated on the 8th of February, or on the preceding Sunday if the 8th of February is not a Sunday. 

 

The United Methodist Church and the Presbyterian Church (USA) celebrate Scout Sunday on the second Sunday of February as not to conflict with Transfiguration Sunday.

Scout Sunday has been celebrated in the US since about the middle 1940s. 

The Scout Law says that a "Scout is Reverent" and Scouts of all ages promise to do their "Duty to God".

Scout Sunday was added to the church festivals to make people in church aware of Scouting, and to allow Scouts to live out parts of their pledge.
