Baden-Powell Had A Vision
Posted On: 2020-11-27


The following closing could be done by a Den of boys standing up front and reciting together the first eight lines or have one of them as narrator, take a few steps forward and say:

Baden Powell had a vision,
That he made come true,
So now we can enjoy Scouting,
And have fun while we do.
While he wasn't an American,
He's become famous to us,
Earning through America,
Our admiration and trust.

An adult leader dressed as Baden Powell comes out, faces the audience, and says:

Now may the Spirit of Scouting,
Be with both young and old.
As you remember again,
The meaning of Blue and Gold.
May you strive for truth and spirituality,
In the warm sunlight under the sky above,
As you bring good cheer and happiness
With steadfast loyalty brought through love.

Good Night and Happy Scouting!!
