A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent
These 12 Words To Live By are the foundation of Scouting —
12 simple points that set high standards. The Scout Law guides Scouts of all levels when they are alone or as members of their family, community and nation. The Scout Law is a guide for living a good life.
Parents said that after one year in Cub Scouts:
80 percent of their sons learned to stay away from drugs, and to help at home.
90 percent said Scouting encouraged family togetherness through projects, going places, and talking with each other.
95 percent said Scouting provides a safe and friendly environment and created a sense of belonging, and their sons learned to get along with others.
