The Scout Challenge
It's easy to join a Scout Troop but it is not so easy to live up the ideals of Scouting. For that you need courage, determination and the help of your fellow scouts, parents and friends. If a boy has friends, or is part of a group or team where all are attempting to maintain their honor, and do what's right, then the challenge is made a lot easier.
In some ways, Scouting is like a game with rules you must follow to be a member of the team. The rules of Scouting are found in our Scout Motto, Oath, Laws and Slogan. It is by following these rules that you become a true scout and prepare for life as an adult.
In 1907, Sir Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Boy Scout movement chose the North point of the old sailor's compass as the logo for the movement. He chose this design to show that through scouting a boy could be pointed in the right direction in life as truly as a compass would always point it out in the field.
The Scout Motto is BE PREPARED. Baden-Powell, the founder of scouting developed the Scout Motto from the Knights Code. Knight's Code of old was " Be Always Ready."
On my honor, I will do my best
a Scout is:
" Do a good turn daily. "
