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.

 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


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 it is cold-out. I will leave 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-impact 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.

 

The Scouting way is to leave no trace of your presence in the outdoors. Always take good care of nature.
