Outdoor Code Opening Ceremony for a Den

Before taking your den on an outing, use this repeat-after-me method and explanation of the Outdoor Code; it can be a valuable tool in helping the boys understand what is expected of them.

Den Leader:            As an American, I will do my best to be clean in my outdoor manners.

                        (Boys repeat.)

Assistant Den Leader explains:  I will treat the outdoors as a heritage.  I will improve it for myself and others.  I will keep my trash and garbage out of America’s waters, fields, woods and roadways.

Den Leader:            Be careful with fire,  (Boys repeat.)

Assistant Den Leader explains:  I will prevent wildfire.  I will build my fire in a safe place and be sure it is out before I leave.

Den Leader:            Be considerate in the outdoors,  (Boys repeat.)

Assistant Den Leader explains:  I will treat public and private property with respect.  I will remember that the use of the outdoors is a right that I can lose by abuse.

Den Leader:            Be conservation minded.  (Boys repeat.)

Assistant Den Leader explains:  I will learn how to practice good conservation of soil, waters, forest, minerals, grasslands, wildfire and energy.  I will urge others to do the same.
