Congratulations to our Adult Recognition Award recipients

Happy World Scout Day!

Across the world, Scouts today are celebrating the 112th anniversary of the first Scout camp at Brownsea Island.

Baden-Powell’s experiment with a group of 20 or 21 boys was visionary and successful. It led to a Movement which has seen more than 500 million members since August 1 1907, and today has more than 50 million members.

Even then, Scouting was taking the lead in diversity and inclusion - admittedly a group of British boys, but bringing them together from different socio-economic backgrounds was radical.

Today we celebrate by wearing our scarves to school and work, with a visible presence in our local community, and special events in local halls.

We also announce the 2019 Adult Recognition Awards for some of Scouts Victoria’s finest Leaders and supporters.
