Scout Oath and Law Effective Dates


Effective Dates Announced for Scout Oath and Law Change

Last year, the National Executive Board passed a resolution that, in support of the mission of the Boy Scouts of America, all programs would begin using the Scout Oath and Law. Recently, there have been a number of questions about the effective date of this change, which primarily affects Cub Scouting and Venturing.   The effective date of the change will be May 2014 for Venturing and May 2015 for Cub Scouting.
