The Scout Law

"A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent"

We live by laws. Each and every day we observe or break laws in our lives, either knowingly or unknowingly.

Some laws you can't really break, like gravity, unless you're an astronaut, or maybe Elon Musk. Some you don't know you're breaking, like maybe if you're under 18 and playing pinball in South Carolina (no, really).

Other laws are a little more obvious and not that hard to keep to, after all, even when you start to drive your 1980 Gremlin with wicker seats it's probably not up to hitting 95mph on the highway. The laws that we're held to are those that require good character, honest self examination and the dedication to put others first. Abiding by these laws will do more than keep you out of trouble in South Carolina pinball halls... they'll carry you through your life, strengthen your relationships and build your communities. This is why we are proud to highlight the Scout Law.

This rule of life has seen many young men through adolescence, to graduation and on into golden years with far more than just skills pertaining to knots. It has served as steps to maturity, a way to be prepared for all that the future throws at you, and as a solid footing in changing times. We're proud to present gifts that highlight the importance of Scouting and to present this series on The Scout Law. For the next several weeks we will highlight this wall decoration, and the importance of the Scout Law.
