 The Cub Scout Promise

It's important not just to say the Promise, but to know what it means.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I promise When you say "I promise," it means you will do your best to keep your word. It is very important to keep your promises and to stand by the things you say. This shows people that they can trust you and rely on you.

 

 

 

 

To do my best
Giving your best effort is right and honest. Always remember that your best is not the same as someone else's best. Doing the best you can is more important than trying to be better than someone else.

To do my duty
You have moral, civic, and ethical obligations to other people at home and in the community based on what you have learned or experienced in life that makes you who you are.

To God
Doing what is right and not doing things we know are wrong is one way to do our duty to God. Another way is to practice our religion at home and at our place of worship. We should respect other people's religious beliefs even if they are different from our own.

And my country
Duty to country starts with being a good citizen. This means caring about the people in your community and helping people. Good citizenship also means obeying the law. It means standing up for the rights of all Americans. Good citizens also take care of America's land, water, and natural places.

To help other people
Helping other people means doing things to help those around you—your family, friends, classmates, neighbors, and others in your community—without having to be told.

And to obey the Law of the Pack
Besides obeying the Law of the Pack (below), you should obey the laws in your community and state, the rules in your school, the rules at home, and the code of conduct in your den.

 

 

 
The Law of the Pack
 

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
In Cub Scouting, Akela (pronounced Ah-KAY-la) means "good leader." Akela is the leader of the wolf pack from Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.  To a Cub Scout, Akela is a parent, teacher, religious leader, or Cub Scout leader. Akela is anyone who has shown ability and willingness to be a good leader for Cub Scouts to follow. 
One must first learn to be a good follower in order to be a good leader. The key word in this phrase of the Law of the Pack is follows. When following, a Cub Scout should choose a good leader to emulate.

The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
Cub Scouts help the pack go by being loyal members, attending all meetings, following the leaders, and making the pack better because they belong. It means doing one's share. By helping the pack, Cub Scouts have more fun and feel satisfied. The key word in this phrase is helps.

The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
Cub Scouting helps boys grow into better people. They learn how to do new things and to reach out to others. The key word in this phrase is grow.

The Cub Scout gives goodwill.
It's a good feeling for a boy to do what he is expected to do. It's an even better feeling when he does more than he is expected to do. Help boys look for ways to make other people happy. The small things are just as important as the big ones. Anything that makes life a little easier or more pleasant for someone else is goodwill. The key word in this phrase is gives.
