On my honor, I will do my best, do to 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.
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
Scouting provides youth with an opportunity to try new things, provide service to others, build self-confidence, and reinforce ethical standards. These opportunities not only help them when they are young but also carry forward into their adult lives, improving their relationships, their work lives, their family lives, and the values by which they live.
The following purposes, aims, and methods clearly outline how Scouting has been able to help youth grow and reach their fullest potential. By their participation, they have gained responsibility, learned to be contributing citizens in their communities, learned right from wrong, become healthier, and become better students. Adhering to the Scout Oath and Law daily provides them with a strong values system.
