Boy Scout Outdoor Code

Outdoor Code

      As an American, I will do my best to--be clean in
my outdoor manners, be careful with fire,
be considerate in the outdoors,
and be conservation-minded.


   As a Webelos Scout, you'll hike and camp out. As a Boy Scout,
You'll be outdoors a lot more often. The Outdoor Code is a guide all scouts use.
Read it with your Webelos den leader and discuss what it means.




Be clean in my outdoor manners: I will treat the outdoors as a heritage.
I will take care of it for myself and others. I will keep my trash and garbage
out of lakes, streams, fields, woods, and roadways.


Be careful with fire: I will prevent wildfire. I will build my fires only where they are appropriate.
When I have finished using fire, I will make sure i is cold-out. I will have a clean fire ring
or remove all evidence of my fire.


Be considerate in the outdoors: I will treat public and private property
with respect.I will use low-impac methods of hiking and camping.


Be conservation-minded: I will learn how to practice good conservation of soil,
waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, wildlife, and energy. I will urge others to do the same
