In 1907, the first experimental Scouting unit was formed on Brownsea Island by Robert Baden-Powell, later Lord Baden-Powell, our Founder and Chief Scout of the World. Each year since, thousands of Scouts and Scouters have followed in our Founder’s footsteps by creating new Scouting units.
In the Boy Scouts of America, the efforts of a unit’s founding members are recognized with a special piece of insignia. The Founder’s Bar is worn by all youth and adults whose names are on a new-unit charter or who officially join the new unit before the unit recharters for the first time. Youth and adults entitled to wear this insignia can sew the Founder’s Bar on the left sleeve of their uniform below the unit numeral.
Crew / Ship 4’s founding members are listed below. Their work in forming and sustaining our unit has added to Scouting’s history.
