What does the Scout Law mean to you?

Every Scout can recite the 12 points of the Scout Law, but how many have taken time to really think about what the words mean?

In the summer of 2007, nine Scouts from the Capitol Area Council in central Texas decided to do just that. They worked side-by-side with professional producers to learn the craft of filmmaking for the “Believe It. Live It.” documentary project. Their goal: to create a video for each of the 12 points of the Scout Law, each profiling everyday people from their community who believe and live the Scout Law. is proud to host their videos featuring the 12 points of the Scout Law.

    I was especially moved by the military stories in this series. I salute our heros at war.

  5. awsome

  6. I was an adult leader for many years and the Scout Law is a way of life for all to live by. If you follow these 12 simple words, you will never go wrong. I also believe in the Scout Motto “BE PREPARED”. Again two simple words but they have such a great meaning.

  7. To help other in time of need.
