American Creed

EQUIPMENT: A red candle, white candle, blue candle.

ARRANGEMENT: Room is dark except for the three candles.

PERSONNEL: Four Scouts.

SCOUT 1. As I put out this white candle representing purity, may we be ever mindful of this obligation that a Scout is clean. He is clean in body and thought, stands for clean speech, clean sport, clean habits, and travels with a clean crowds.

SCOUT 2. As I put out this blue candle representing loyalty, may we be ever mindful of this obligation that a Scout is loyal. He is loyal to all to whom loyalty is due, his Scout leader, his home, his parents, and his country.

SCOUT 3. As I put out this red candle representing courage and sacrifice, may we be ever mindful of our obligation that a Scout is brave. He has the courage to face danger in spite of fear, and to stand up for the right against the coaxing of friends and the jeers or threats of enemies and defeat does not drown him.

SCOUT 4. May we close this pack meeting by reminding our selves of our duty according to the American's Creed;

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country

To love it;

To support its constitution;

To obey its laws;

To respect its flag; and

To defend it against all enemies.
