The Scout Method
Scouts Canada engages youth, involving them throughout their formative years in a non-formal educational process, using a specific Method that makes each individual the principal agent of his or her development as a self-reliant, supportive, responsible and committed person. The Scout Method is an approach unique to Scouting throughout the world (World Association of the Scouting Movement’s Scouting: An Educational System) and includes each of the following eight elements:
- Scout Law and Promise
- Learning by Doing
- The Team System
- A Symbolic Framework
- Personal Progression
- Adult Support
- Community Involvement
The Scout Law
A Scout is helpful and trustworthy,
Kind and cheerful,
Considerate and clean,
and wise in the use of all resources.
On my honour;
I promise that I will do my best;
To do my duty to God and the King;
To help other people at all times;
and to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law.
