“At your investiture as a Scout you will make the Scout Promise in front of the rest of the Troop. The Promise is a very difficult one to keep, but it is a most serious one and nobody is a Scout unless they do their best to live up to this Promise.”
Robert Baden-Powell – Scouting for Boys
The Promise and Law are below for your reference: make sure you know them!
Alternative wording for the promise is also possible for those who wish to use it; please speak to the leaders to discuss this if required.
