The Scout Promise and Law

Promise and Law

Is based on the Following Principles:

Duty to God - a person’s relationship with the spiritual values of life, the fundamental belief in a force above mankind. 

Duty to others - a person’s relationship with, and responsibility within, society in the broadest sense of the term: his or her family, local community, country and the world at large, as well as respect for others and for the natural world.

Duty to self - a person’s responsibility to develop his or her own potential, to the best of that person’s ability.
