Selected article

Scouts who earn the Swimming merit badge will learn about safety when swimming and diving, how swimming can contribute to overall fitness and health, and gain some basic competitive swimming skills.

Required for the Eagle Scout Rank, the Swimming merit badge was one of the original 57 merit badges created in 1911.

August dates
  • August 1-9, 1907Robert Baden-Powell holds the first (experimental) Scouting encampment at Brownsea Island. He began setting camp up on July 29, 1907.
  • August 6, 1900William "Green Bar Bill" Hillcourt, the father of American Scouting, is born in Denmark.
  • August 8, 1909 – Scout camp half-held on the Training Ship Mercury (there was only room for 50 boys but it had earlier been advertised as a camp for the top 100 boys, so half camped on land then they switched half-way through), which led to the formation of Sea Scouts.
  • August 21, 1912 – Arthur Rose Eldred becomes the first Eagle Scout in the history of Boy Scouts of America.
  • August 22, 1908 – First official Scout camp at Humshaugh, England. The Scouting movement didn't officially exist during the 1907 Brownsea Island camp -- this was the first camp attended by registered Scouts.
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical choices over their lifetime by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.
