The Scout Promise and Law

All Leaders in roles in Scout are required to take the Scout Promise and abide by the Scout Law and the Adult Code of Conduct

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".

In the younger age sections the law is simplified commensurate with the age, you can see these in the sections pages.

There are two versions of the Scout Promise. Individuals taking the Promise may choose from either of the following:

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

OR

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
