The Scout Promise
On my honour I promise that I will do my best,
to do my duty to God,
to further my understanding and acceptance of a Spiritual Reality,
to uphold our Scout Principles,
to serve my community,
to help other people
and to live by the Venture Scout Law.

It is up to an individual to choose the one that best represents them.
