A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind,
Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
(Scout Law)

On my honor I will do my best
To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
(Scout Oath)

As an American, I will do my best to -
Be clean in my outdoor manners
Be careful with fire
Be considerate in the outdoors, and
Be conservation minded.
(Outdoor Code)

Be Prepared!
(Boy Scout Motto)

Do a Good Turn Daily!
(Boy Scout Slogan)

"May the great Scoutmaster of all Scouts be with you until we meet again."
