The Baden-Powell family, Sir Robert, his brother, his sister, Agnes, and his wife, Olave, were all active in the scouting and guiding movement. Robert and Olave shared the same birthday, 22 February. That week has come to be recognized as scout and guide week. In the girl scouting and guiding movement the day is a day of reflection called Thinking Day.
