Fundamentals of Scouting

Our values

Part of being a Scout is going on a journey to understand who you are and what you stand for. Everyone is unique, but there are some things all Scouts can agree on. We call these Scout values. They’re at the heart of who we are and what we do. And we think they’re rather important:


Integrity

We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no one’s watching), and we stay true to ourselves.


Respect

We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.


Care

We’re kind to ourselves and to others. We look after the world we live in.


Belief

We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds – learning about other cultures, and thinking for ourselves.


Cooperation

We build bridges, not walls, and we work together to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.
