Cubservation A Scout Is Clean—How Does “Cubservation” Relate to This Point of the Scout Law?

Everything we do impacts the world around us. When a Scout lives the “A Scout is clean” point of the Scout Law, he is choosing to make sure the legacy he leaves is a positive one. He makes moral choices, and through an active lifestyle he keeps his body healthy. He also is conscious of the impact he can have on nature and the responsibility he has to keep the world clean for those who come behind him.

Please sign in when you arrive and join your Den. The first Saturday we will be distributing the flyers and plastic bags, returning to collect donations on the following Saturday.
