All Scouts in Australia commit to a code of living as expressed in the Promise and Law.

The Scouting program is designed to help members to learn how to keep their Promise. One of the most important aspects of the Scout Law is that members voluntarily undertake to live by it.

Australian Scout Promise

The law is simplified in the younger age sections.

On my honour
I promise to do my best,
To be true to my spiritual beliefs,
To contribute to my community and to our world,
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law.

On my honour
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to my God, and
To the Queen of Australia
To help other people,
And to live by the Scout Law.

Australian Scout Law
