Outdoor Code of SCOUTS South Africa

  • I will treat the outdoors - our veld, rivers and mountains - as a heritage to be cherished and protected; and to be enriched for our own greater enjoyment and for future generations.
  • I will learn to understand nature and her ways.
  • I will learn how to practice conservation of soil, water, forests, grasslands and wildlife, and urge others to do the same.
  • I will treat public and private land with respect, remembering that the use of the outdoors is a privilege.
  • I will prevent fires and build my own fire in a safe place, and be sure it is out before I depart.
  • I will keep my litter and garbage out of South African waters fields, woods, veld and roadways.
  • Whenever I take from nature for my own use, I will endeavour to return a share of her bounty.
