After attending meetings for a few weeks, members will make their promise as part of an investiture ceremony.
Many members also renew their promise on an annual basis, traditionally at a St. Georges Day service, meeting or outdoor activity.
Alternative versions of the promise are available. The core promise, which refers to a ‘Duty to God’, remains intact and Scouting is fully committed as a movement to exploring faith and religion as a core element of its programme.
If you would like your child to make a specific promise, please discuss it with the leader.
