Spiritual Development

The spiritual development of all members is an important element of Scouts.

The Scout Association is a Movement that explores faith, beliefs and attitudes as a core element of our programme, and is one of our fundamental Values.

Scout's don't seek to take responsibility for religious development or education, but learning about faiths, beliefs and attitudes can help make the world a more tolerant and less frightening place.

Both adults and young people commit to engaging in spiritual development when they make their Promise and become members of the Movement.

The spiritual development of all members is an important element of Scouts, and all members should be encouraged to follow the five principles.
