Scouting Fundamentals Print E-mail

The PRINCIPLES of Scouting, as identified by the Founder, are that SCOUTS should serve God, act in consideration of others and develop and use their abilities to the betterment of themselves, their families and the community in which they live.

The three principles are referred to as:

  • Duty to my God
  • Duty to Others
  • Duty to Self

They are contained in the Code of Conduct which is signed by all Adult members of the Association.

These Principles are the basis on which BP founded the Movement and they are still as applicable today as they were in 1908. These are the positive values on which Scouting is developed. They form a basis for being a good citizen and are something to which we all strive.
