Cub Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
The Scout Law has 12 points. Each is a goal for every Scout. A Scout tries to live up to the Law every day. It is not always easy to do, but a Scout always tries.
A Scout is:
Tell the truth and keep promises. People can depend on you.
Show that you care about your family, friends, Scout leaders, school, and country.
Volunteer to help others without expecting a reward.
Be a friend to everyone, even people who are very different from you.
Be polite to everyone and always use good manners.
Treat others as you want to be treated . Never harm or kill any living thing without good reason.
Follow the rules of your family, school, and pack. Obey the laws of your community and country.
Look for the bright side of life. Cheerfully do tasks that come your way. Try to help others be happy.
Work to pay your own way. Try not to be wasteful. Use time, food, supplies, and natural resources wisely.
Face difficult situations even when you feel afraid. Do what you think is right despite what others might be doing or saying.
Keep your body and mind fit . Help keep your home and community clean.
Be reverent toward God. Be faithful in your religious duties. Respect the beliefs of others.
