The Scout Promise:
On my honor
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and the Queen
To help other people at all times,
And to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.
The Scout Law:
A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,
Kind and cheerful,
Considerate and clean,
And wise in the use of all
The Scout Motto:
- Scouting is for youth of typical ages 11, 12, 13 and 14 with option to continue to 16th birthday.
- Scout activities emphasize personal development (decision making, interaction with peers) while living and playing outdoors - in harmony with nature and the environment. Hiking, camping, exploring, summer and winter sports and community service comprise the principle activities of Scouts. Scouts earn Achievement badges and Challenge Badges. These badges allow Scouts to earn the Chief Scout Award, the highest award in the Scouting program. The Scout leadership team consists of dedicated adults trained to provide quality programs.
- The Scout program emphasizes having fun while encouraging youth to feel good about themselves, their friends and family, God, and the environment. The Scout program helps youth expand their leadership skills and gain self confidence.
- Scouting promotes activities that encourage youth to:
- express and respond to their own spiritual values and beliefs while showing concern for others;
- develop self reliance;
- pursue hobbies and personal interests;
- develop self discipline and the skills of working cooperatively with others;
- cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals;
- practise leadership skills;
- relate with adults;
- be of service to others;
- camp, explore the outdoors, and develop good conservation practices
- The Scout program is designed around a lively variety of activities based on personal and group interests. Scouts emphasizes outdoor and environmental activities, citizenship and community service, leadership, and personal development. Individual interests and skills are recognized through an awards system.
- The outdoors is an essential part of the Scout program. Weekend events, extended hikes, no trace camping and seasonal sports opportunities round out the Scout experience. Developing an active, healthy lifestyle is the prime goal.
- Scouts meet in a group called a troop. The troop is split into smaller groups called patrols. There is one leader for every six Scouts. Each Scout learns a promise, law and motto to help guide their personal development.
- The Scout Troop requires a Youth-to-Leader ratio of 6 to 1.
