The Boy Scouts of America designates the Sunday that falls before February 8 as Scout Sunday. However, a chartered organization or local religious organization may choose to celebrate on another day.

The Presbyterian Church and United Methodist Church celebrate Scout Sunday on the second Sunday of February so as to not conflict with Communion Sunday. In the the Jewish faith, Scout Sabbath is celebrated on the Saturday after February 8, Scouting Anniversary Day.

February 8, 1910 was the founding of the Boy Scouts of America by W. D. Boyce and the first Scout Sunday was in 1914. See Boy Scouts of America Historical Highlights for more.

The Scout Law says that a "Scout is Reverent" and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their "Duty to God". These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith.
