THE SCOUT LAW & PROMISE


The Scout Promise (or Oath) is to carry out, on his honour, as far as in him lies,and the Scout Law is our binding disciplinary force, and with ninety-nine out of a hundred it pays. The boy is not governed by DON'T, but is led on by DO. The Scout Law is devised as a guide to his actions rather than as repressive of his faults. It merely states what is good form and expected of a Scout. The Scout Law and Promise is truly the foundation on which the whole of Scout training rests.
