Scout Promise and Law

Scouts adopt a code of living that is known as the Scout Law. In the younger age sections the law is simplified commensurate with the age of the young people. 

One of the most important aspects of the Scout Law is that members voluntarily undertake to live by it. The Scouting program is designed to help members to learn how to keep their promise: that is "To do my best...to live by the Scout Law".

 

The Scout Promise

There are two options for the Scout Promise. The individual taking the Promise may choose to use either of the following:

Option 1:

On my honour, I promise to do my best
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and our world
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law

Option 2:

On my honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia
To help other people, and
To live by the Scout Law
