District Thinking Day Campfire (25 February 2012)

When Lord Robert Baden Powell founded the Scouting movement in 1907, he couldn’t have imagined how many young people would enjoy being Scouts and Guides in the 100 years that followed. He founded the Guide movement in 1910, and his wife Olave was World Chief Guide during her lifetime. 

They share a birthday – 22nd February – and so Guides and Scouts around the world use this date to commemorate the success of their organisations on Thinking Day. This year, we are running a joint event for Scouts and Guides in the Oxford area to commemorate this day.
