  • Cooperate in setting and achieving small group and personal goals
  • Practise leadership skills
  • Relate with adults

  • Camp, explore the outdoors, and develop good conservation practices
Scouts Uniform 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.

Scout Promise:
On my honour
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.

Scout Law:
A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,
kind and cheerful,
considerate and clean,
wise in the use of all resources.

Be Prepared
