Celebration of Scouting

Each year Scouting Ireland observes ‘Founders Day’, the birthday of Robert Baden-Powell the founder of Scouting.  In 2013, as part of their ‘Founders Day’ celebrations local scouting groups are hosting a weekend of events in Derry~Londonderry for members of the scouting movement to mark their cultural identity, history, beliefs and demonstrate the skills and art of scouting.

Some 2,500 young people aged 16-18 from a range of backgrounds and other associated organisations will come together in a scouting celebration. This will also allow members of the public to become more aware of the ethos behind scouting and observe the scouting method through participation and observation of planned activities such as guest lectures, scouting skills displays and parades.
