Founders Day Service - Mountainside Church, Sun 18 Feb 2007

Thanks to all those who attended the service. Here is a copy of the reading about 100 years of Scouting.

Today we are here to commemorate our founder’s birthday, celebrate 100 years of Scouting worldwide and thank Mountainside church for supporting our scout group for many years.

Scouting was founded by Robert Baden-Powel who was born on 22nd February 1857. While at school he would disappear into the nearby woods - officially off limits to pupils - and learnt how to hide his tracks, climb and 'freeze' to escape detection by his school masters.

As a soldier he successfully defended the town of Mafeking from the besieging Boer troops during the Anglo-Boer war. During this time he had written a training guide for soldiers called 'Aids to Scouting' intended to teach techniques such as observation, tracking and initiative. The book became enormously popular with many boys and young men and he was persuaded to write a new book for young people; scouting for boys was published in 1908.

They came from Flin Flon, Wawa, Toronto and Victoria; Nunavut and Prince Edward Island, Westmount and Pointe Claire - thousands came, all lugging heavy crates and backpacks full of tents and clothes and balls and badges.

This week, Scouts Canada is celebrating 100 years of Scouting around the world with the Historic Canadian Scout Jamboree. Nearly 8,000 Scouts and their leaders arrived yesterday at Tamaracouta Scout Reserve, in the Laurentians, from all corners of the country as well as from Kenya, Australia, Switzerland, England, Ireland and Thailand.

The 400-hectare camp in Mille Iles, 80 kilometres northwest of Montreal, will be home as Scouts celebrate and meet their kin from around the world for the next week.

Mackenzie Carson, 12, from Burlington, Ont., arrives at Camp Tamaracouta yesterday fully prepared for the week-long jamboree.
