South Area Founder’s Day Celebration 2023

In commemoration of the Scout Founder’s Day on 22nd February 2023, South Area will organize a celebratory campfire.

The theme for this year’s campfire will be “Superheroes”. Participants will take part in many exciting and interactive activities with fellow scouts from the area, strengthening the unique fellowship of Scouting.

Units that send their youths as participants will be able to enter their participation under the “Area Activities” component of the Frank Cooper Sands Award. Please refer to Annex A for event details.

We are also encouraging units to participate in the following events:

  1. Design Area Scout Founder’s Day badge competition – Design a Scout Founder’s Day Badge with the Superhero and/or Environment themes, together with a short write up of their choice of design. A panel of leaders will review these submissions and the top three designs will be shortlisted as potential icons to incorporate for the Area Scout Founder’s Day badge.Competition criteria can be found in the submission link. Submit via this link:
  2. Skit/Performance Competition – The best item from each section will be shortlisted and perform live on the day of the campfire. Competition criteria can be found in the submission link. Submit via this link:
  3. Best Dress Competition – Use your creativity in the costumes and the superheroes spirit (think superheroes and DJC theme) as a unit or individual and this will be judged on the day of the campfire with attractive prizes to be won.

Units that participate in the above activities will be able to enter their participation under the “Competitions” component of the Frank Cooper Sands Award

Deadline to submit badge design and skit/performance via Google form is Friday, 17th February 2023, 5pm.

Greetings from the Singapore Scout Association (SSA)

The Special Needs (SN) Roundtable is pleased to invite all units (SN & non-SN units) to participate in an online campfire that will take place on Friday, 27th May 2022.

As large face-to-face activities are currently restricted, the virtual Campfire will enable participants to continue to foster the Scouting Sprit of forging new friendships, learning scouting songs, and building rapport over the duration of the event. Consequently, participants will also learn to appreciate and respect each other’s unique abilities and enjoy the camaraderie that would have been built over the course of the campfire.

Please refer to Annex A for further details.

As places are limited, registration is based on a first-come-first-served basis. Kindly register via MSDS’s Youth Programme Registration portal:  by Monday, 4th April 2022. Accepted registrations will be duly notified.

Do contact Ms Emily Ho, Programme Assistant at or call us at 62592858 for any clarifications.
We look forward to your enthusiastic participation.

Thank you and stay safe.

Yours in Scouting,

Gary Lim
Executive Director
