Camping: Latest camping info and permission slips.
Values: All of us – including you as a parent of a Scout in Troop 1000 — can help enrich the lives of these boys and make a difference in the kind of men they become. Together we will continue the mission of the Boy Scouts of America – begun in 1910 – to prepare young people to make ethical
choices over their lifetimes and to become responsible, participating citizens and leaders, by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and the twelve points of the Scout Law.
Boy Scout Oath or Promise
On my honor, I will do my best to do my duty
to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law;
To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong,
mentally awake and morally straight.
Boy Scout Law
A Scout is: Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful,
Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient,
Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean,
In addition, a Scout learns the importance of two key ideals in his everyday activities:
Scout Motto: Be Prepared
Scout Slogan: Do A Good Turn Daily
As well as The Outdoor Code, as timely (if not more so) today as it ever has been.
The Outdoor Code
As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my
outdoor manners, be careful with fire, be considerate
in the outdoors, and be conservation minded.
