Versions of the Squirrel Scout Promise

Help a young person choose the promise that is right for them.

The Scouts Promise helps our young people to understand and remember the values of Scouting. Every young person and leader makes their promise as part of being welcomed into Scouting. Speak to one of the Leaders to find out more about making their promise.

Scouts is open to people of all faiths as well as people who are humanist, atheist or have no affirmed faith. Therefore, nobody has to talk about God in their Promise. Similarly, people of other nationalities resident in the United Kingdom who become Scouts owe allegiance to their own country – not ours.
