As Scouts we are guided by these values:Integrity: We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal. Respect: We have self-respect and respect for others. Care: We support others and take care of the world in which we live. Belief: We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes. Cooperation: We make a positive difference; we cooperate with others and make friends.
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
- enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
- take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
- learn by doing;
- share in spiritual reflection;
- take responsibility and make choices;
- undertake new and challenging activities;
- and make and live by their Promise.
Making your Promise and becoming invested in Scouting – whether as a young person or as an adult – is an important occasion. It’s a tradition that stretches right back to the inception of Scouting in 1907. The words aren’t to be said lightly: they reflect the core values of the whole Scouting Movement.
Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Happy Birthday Cubs! Our promise party is at Glenbrook Guide Centre on Friday, December 16th 2016. It’s going to be the wildest party ever!
