What every Cub Scout needs to know

Except for Pledge of Allegiance, copyright © 1998 Boy Scouts of America

Pledge of Allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Cub Scout Promise

I, (state your name), promise to do my best to do my duty to God and my country, to help other people, and to obey the Law of the Pack.

Law of the Pack

The Cub Scout follows Akela.
The Cub Scout helps the pack go.
The pack helps the Cub Scout grow.
The Cub Scout gives goodwill.

Cub Scout Motto

Do Your Best.


Webelos (WEE-buh-lows) has a secret meaning for Cub Scouts -- We'll Be Loyal Scouts. Loyal means that you will keep your Cub Scout Promise.

Cub Scout Sign

Make the two-fingered sign with your right hand. Hold your arm straight up. Do not bend your elbow.

The two fingers stand for the two points of the Promise -- to help other people and to obey. They look like a wolf's ears ready to listen to Akela.

When you say the Cub Scout Promise or the Law of the Pack, give the Cub Scout Sign. This is the sign of Cub Scouts all over the world.

Cub Scout Handshake

When you shake hands, use your right hand. Put the first two fingers along the inside of your friend's wrist. This means that you are brothers in Cub Scouting and that both of you help other people and obey the Law of the Pack.

Cub Scout Salute

The Cub Scout Salute means that you respect our country's flag. Salute with your right hand. If you are wearing your Cub Scout cap, place your two fingers on the brim. If you do not have a cap, place your two fingers over your eyebrow.
