Each year on February 22, Guides and Scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day, the birthday of their founders Lord and Lady Baden-Powell. Since 2013 we have been collecting crafts, recipes and activities during our Countdown to Thinking Day events and we've compiled all that information in one handy location. Check out our latest content update with our Thinking Day Ideas in our free Ideas & Plans section.  And of course, we have a new Thinking Day crest too!

Design A Patch Contest Winner!

We are extremely happy to announce the winner of our 2020 Design A Patch contest. Congratulations to Candice Mittelstadt! Her design, "Shelter Helper," can be purchased in our Community Service category.

We would also like to give a special mention to our runners up: "Outdoor Meeting" by Anne-Elizabeth and "Pirate" by Scouter Roy Caja from 1st Beamsville.

Thank you to everyone who participated. There were so many well-designed entries that it was really tough to pick a winner. And seeing all those beautiful drawings have inspired us to want to make more patches!
