The Scouting method

What is it that is magic about Scouting that has made it so strong after more than 100 years? We call it the Scout Method – this is the foundation of Scouting and it has withstood the test of time.

The principle elements of the Scout Method are:

  1. Voluntary membership of a uniformed group which guided by adults, is increasingly self-governing in its successive age groups.
  2. Commitment to a code of living as expressed in the Promise and Law, the meaning of which is expanded as the member grows towards maturity.
  3. The provision of a wide range of attractive, constructive and challenging activities, including opportunities for adventure and exploration both indoors and outdoors.
  4. The provision of opportunities for leadership and responsibility.
  5. Learning by doing.
  6. Encouragement of activity in small groups.
  7. An award scheme which encourages participation in its full range of activities and provides recognition of individual achievements.
