What is A Scouts' Own Service?
As scouts and scouters we need to find a way to worship God when we are away at camp. Since we come from diverse religious backgrounds, Lord Baden Powell felt a Scouts' Own Service would allow scouts and scouters to worship God together.
We're Here to Help!
We were first introduced to the Scouts' Own Service when we attended Scoutmastership Fundamentals in 1999. Since that time we have been conducting Scouts' Own Services at troop and council-wide campouts. We have received many inquiries on the planning of our Scouts' Own Services. This site is designed as a guide to help scouts and scouters interested in planning Scouts' Own Services.
