The Cub Scout Promise

Every Cub will be asked to make the Cub Promise when they are invested. The Promise reflects our shared values in Scouting, so it’s important that Cubs should properly understand what they are promising to do. There are a number of variations of the Promise, according to the Cub’s personal faith or beliefs.

For Christians, Jews and Sikhs :

I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For humanists, atheists and those with no defined faith :

I promise that I will do my best to uphold our Scout values, to do my duty to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For Hindus and Buddhists :

I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to my Dharma and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For Muslims :

I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to Allah and to the Queen, to help other people and to keep the Cub Scout Law.

For subjects of independent Commonwealth countries, foreign nationals and individuals who are stateless the following wording can replace ‘duty to the Queen’

…to do my duty to the country in which I am now living.

The Cub Scout Law

Cub Scouts always do their best

Think of others before themselves

And do a good turn every day
