Welcome To The Boy Scouts Of America
- The Promise*
SCOUTING promises you the great outdoors.
As a Scout, you can learn how to camp and hike without leaving a trace and how
to take care of the land. You'll study wildlife up close and learn about nature
all around you. There are plenty of skills for you to master, and you can teach
others what you have learned. Everyone helping everyone else-that's part of
SCOUTING promises you friendship. Members
of the troop you join might be boys you already know, and you will meet many
other Scouts along the way. Some could become lifelong friends.
SCOUTING promises you opportunities to work
toward the Eagle Scout rank. You will set positive goals for yourself and then
follow clear routes to achieve them.
SCOUTING promises you tools to help you
make the most of your family, your community, and your nation. The good deeds
you perform every day will improve the lives of those around you. You will be
prepared to help others in time of need.
SCOUTING promises you experiences and
duties that will help you mature into a strong, wise adult. The Scout Oath and
the Scout Law can guide you while you are a Scout and throughout your life.
Adventure, learning, challenge,
responsibility - the promise of Scouting is all this and more.
