The Scout Law is a summary of character issues that scouts pledge to follow. We've modified them to apply to you.
TrustworthyI tell the truth. I keep my promises. Honesty is part of my code of conduct. People can depend on me.
LoyalI am true to my family, leaders, friends, community and nation.

KindI understand there is strength in being gentle. I treat others as they want to be treated. I do not hurt or kill harmless things without reason.
