The text aims to characterise the factors of unpredictability of agency during the 1001 Frombork Operation between 1966 and 1973. The unpredictability of these anniversary initiatives concerned the individual’s freedom of action, the implementation of their roles and functions, the effec- tiveness of procedures, the credibility of the features attributed to him, and the scope of change caused by the agency. Agency is defined as the choice of action that corresponds to the identity and subjectivity of the person taking the action. What is unpredictable in the agency process are results that are different from those intended, those that cannot be prevented and can only be re- sponded to in real-time. During the Operation, this was revealed in the style of organising scout- ing, production, and educational work, as well as the constant change in the hierarchy of tasks. The basis for the analysis in the text were documents from the Archives of the Scouting Museum resources and press materials from the Archive of New Records in Warsaw regarding Operation 1001 Frombork
