Heart of America Council

I give you my solemn promise
that since you are a part of me,
and I of you we will spend one day a month
in doing things you want to do.

It may be a Cub Scout project with the den
or prowling thru the woods,
or just anything you say…

So, let's together plan this day,

And grow as fellows should.



Let us go forth with God's blessing to serve him in joy and gladness and let us say - Amen.

Prayer for an Outing

We thank you, O God, for all the loveliness of nature, which is your special handiwork. Everything is wonderfully made with your special care.
Help us to understand our world more and more and know how we can help take care of the things, which you have made, and keep them beautiful as you meant for them to be. Amen

Bay Area Council

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being of a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
