The Scout Promise and Law are without argument the heart and soul of the Movement, making the promise is not just a matter of saying a few words and being given some badges, it is much deeper than that. A Scout is required to have a full understanding of the promise they are about to take and it is revisited several times throughout their career as a Scout and into adulthood.
The Promise and Law are what separates Scouting and Guiding from other youth organisations, without these were are just another youth club.
The promise and law are guidelines for life, Scouting and Guiding are unique in the world because of this. Be sure you are willing to accept and live by this before committing yourself to Scouting...
"On my honour I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God and to my country
to help other people at all times and to obey the Scout law."
