One of the unique features of Scouting is its Promise
As far as possible you should try to learn your promise off-by-heart, as it is important that you try your best to live by it. However we understand that you may get nervous when having to speak in front of the Cub Pack, so during their investiture you will be asked to repeat your promise after a Leader.
The promise is made at an Investiture ceremony, which is your formal welcome to the Pack. It is an important occasion not just for you as a new Cub, but also for the whole Pack.
The Cub Scout Promise is:
‘I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law’
By making your Promise, if you are new to Scouting, you become a Member of the worldwide Scout Movement. There are alternative wordings of the Promise for members of faiths for whom the original wording is inappropriate.
Every Cub Scout should also know the Cub Scout Law, which is:
‘Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves, and do a good turn every day’
