Scouting Values

Cub Scout Motto: Do Your Best

The mission of the Scouts BSA 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 the Scout Law.

Scout Oath

On my honor I will do my best to do my duty

To God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;

To help other people at all times;

To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law

A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent.

Do Your Best. Have Fun Doing It.

The best way to find out what you do best is to do it. Throw a ball. Ride a bike. Hike a trail. Set up a tent. Build a pinwood derby car. Shoot a bow and arrow. Launch a rocket. Cub Scouting offers boys and girls the opportunity to see and learn fun, new things.

Cub Scouts are at that magical age where everything is new and possible and, most important, fun. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together. The life lessons learned here can help form a foundation to embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles in life.
