The Boy Scout Creed

Within minutes of the last post being published I got an email asking for the contents of the “Boy Scout Creed” pictured in the post.
Here is the complete text of the “Boy Scout Creed” by Ludvig S. Dale

To be trustworthy in all things.  Loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous and kind.  To learn obedience and practise cheerfulness and Thrift.  To be brave, clean and reverent.  Above all to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight.  To “Be Prepared” at all times to do my duty to God and my country, and to do a Good Turn to someone every Day.

Ludvig S. Dale was the National Recruiting Officer for the Boy Scouts of America in 1914.

I love to see these older pictures and learn about Scouting’s rich history.  Makes the future of Scouting so much brighter.

Have a Great Scouting Day!

  1. My grandfather Ludvig Dale wrote the boy scout creed for the US. We have a copy of the original which had a beautiful illustration. His sons and grandsons and great grandsons all followed in the scouting tradition.
