  7. On My Honour
  8. Lord Baden-Powell always referred to his scheme as the “game of Scouting” because he wanted it to mean fun and adventure. But to foster the self-discipline of the young Scouts, he also developed a code of ethics in their own terms-the Scout Promise and Laws. He was convinced that a program built around the comradeship of the group, so natural to children, and guided by the Scout Promise would result in an esprit de corps that would bring out the best in every member.
