The Scout Oath and the Scout Law

All scouting programs have the core elements of the Scout Oath and the Scout Law as their foundations. The mission statement of the BSA is as follows:

The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake, and morally straight.
