PROMISE & law

Over 100 years ago Robert Baden-Powell founded Scouting as a values-based Movement. Although times have changed, these values are still important to us and you can read more about how we interpret them today on the UK Scout website.

The Promise that all new Cubs are required to make when they join embodies the values of our Movement:

Cub Scout Promise

I promise that I will do my best

To do my duty to God and to the Queen

To help other people 

And to keep the Cub Scout Law.

Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best 

Think of others before themselves 

And do a good turn every day.

Cub Scout Motto

Be Prepared

Pack Prayer

The Pack prayer is said at the end of each meeting and on other special occasions:

Help us O Lord

To serve you day by day

To enjoy our work

And to enjoy our play

The travel safely home to rest

Happy that we have tried

To do our best
