Scouting's Promise to Every Scout

SCOUTING promises you the great outdoors.  As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how to take care of the land.  You'll study wildlife up close and learn about nature all around you.  There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach others what you have learned.  Everyong helping everyone else - that's part of Scouting, too.
SCOUTING promises you friendship.  Members of the troop you join might be boys you already know, and you will meet many other Scouts along the way.  Some could become lifelong friends.
SCOUTING promises you opprotunities to work toward the Eagle Scout rank.  You will set positive goals for yourself and then follow clear routes to achieve them.
SCOUTING promises you tools to help you make the most of your family, your community,and your nation.  The good deeds you perform every day will improve the lives of those around you.  You will be prepared to help others in time of need.
SCOUTING promises you experiences and duites that will help you mature into a strong, wise adult.  The Scout Oath and the Scout Law can guide you as a Scout and throughout your life.


The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the 
             Scout Oath and Law.
