SCOUTING SAFE HAVEN
Scouting is a Special Place. The rules are ones we know well -- the
Scout Oath and the Scout Law.
We create safe haven in Scouting, a place where everyone should feel
physically and emotionally secure. We do this in several ways:
We set the example for ourselves and others by always behaving as Scouts
should. We live the Scout Oath and Law each moment of each day, to the
best of our abilities.
We refuse to tolerate any kind of inappropriate put-down, name-calling
or physical aggression.
We communicate our acceptance of each participant and each other through
expressions of concern and by showing our appreciation whenever possible.
We create an environment based on learning and fun. We seek the
best from each participant, and we do our best ot help each person achieve
As an adult, you help to create a safe haven by your personal example.
Your attitudes, your behavior and your expectations set the tone.
