The Boy Scouts of America was founded on February 8, 1910. For more than 100 years now it has been an organization dedicated to helping boys grow up and learn important skills. Many of America's presidents and other leaders, as well nearly 200 astronauts have been boy scouts! Some boy scout troops may have their own celebrations on this day to commemorate the anniversary. It is also a great day to get your sons signed up if they're not already involved!
