USSSP: A Scout's Duty to God and Country



Give each boy a piece of rope about one meter long. Tell the boys to tie their ropes together with square knots. Then, holding the knotted rope they form a friendship circle, lean back, and let the rope support them. Scouter says, "You are now part of a group of close friends, help together by a square knot, the symbol of helping others. Let's say our promise together."
