Honouring those who have
In the Scouting community, we honor, grieve and share the news of a long-time scout leader in the tradition of Lord Baden Powell and Lady Olive Baden Powell by using the trail symbol for "gone home." Baden Powell has the symbol on his grave, it is a gentle reminder of our humanity and humility.
When a scout leader, who lived a long vibrant life, helped hundreds of Scouts and families, and earned the role of a leader in the community finally passes, we celebrate all the meaning and value they brought to each of us. In fact, in many ways, that's how Scouting remembers our heroes who have passed. We each live out the best qualities we gained from their generosity. Our camps are rich with their legacies.
