– Voluntary membership of a group which, guided by adults, is increasingly self-governing
in its successive age groups.
– Commitment to a code of living as expressed in the Promise & Law, the meaning of
which is expanded as the member grows towards maturity.
– The provision of a wide range of attractive, constructive and challenging activities,
including opportunities for adventure and exploration both indoors and outdoors.
– The provision of opportunities for leadership and responsibility.
– Learning by doing.
