The international Boy Scout movement was founded in Great Britain in 1908 by cavalry officer Lieutenant General Robert S.S. Baden-Powell, who wrote the book, Scouting for Boys (1908). He succeeded in creating an organization that motivated boys to learn new skills and self-confidence in their journey toward responsible manhood. As they advanced in their education and practice, they were awarded badges of accomplishment to certify and celebrate their successes (much as the SemperVerus wristband signals the wearer’s personal commitment to daily live virtuously and “Stay True”).

Scout Oath:  On my honor I will do my best to do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; to help other people at all times; to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.

Scout Law:  A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
