Scout Promise

Acceptance of the Promise is the only statutory requirement for Membership. The Promise and Law give a clear framework for people to live by in today’s changing society.

Please note that either promise is acceptable

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God and
To the Queen of Australia
To help other people, and
To live by the Scout Law

I promise to do my best

To contribute to my community and our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law
