The Scout Law, the Scout Oath, the methods and aims of Scouting; all these are things the Scout is supposed to do. What does Scouting do for the boy?
The eleventh edition of the Boy Scout Handbook started with a list of five things that Scouting promises to each Scout.
I used these promises as the outline for a Scoutmaster Minute at an Eagle Court of Honor. I talked about how the new Eagle Scouts had made the most of these promises during their years in Scouting, giving specific examples for each Scout.
The five promises aren’t in later editions, so I’ll quote the entire page here.
