The Scout Promise

Scouting is open to everyone and that includes people of all faiths as well as those who are humanist, atheist or have no faith. We consider different religious and non-religious beliefs of our members and we aim to uphold this at Phoenix Explorers.

As part of being invested into Scouting, young people and adults alike are asked to repeat and uphold the Scout Law and the Scout Promise. The Scout Law makes no reference to faith or religion and can be applied to all Scouting members.

At Phoenix Explorers, by default we use the core version of the Scout Promise, however, we encourage our members to use whichever version of the promise they associate with whether that be for your own reflection or as part of ceremonies such as investiture or promise renewals. If you are joining Phoenix Explorers and you want to use an alternative version of the promise for your investiture or other ceremonies, please let us know and we can help you ensure that happens.

To do my duty to God and to the Queen,

And to keep the Scout Law.
