SCOUTS - Be Prepared

Membership Award

When a young person joins the Troop, regardless of whether he or she was a Cub Scout, the following requirements will need to be completed to gain this Award:

a)    know about the Troop

b)    get to know other Members and Leaders in the Patrol and Troop

c)    find out about the ceremonies and traditions in the Troop

d)    find out about the activities that the Patrol and Troop does

e)    know and understand the Scout Promise and Law and the rules of the Troop

f)    know and understand the Scout Motto, Sign, Salute and Handshake

g)    show a general knowledge of the history and family of Scouts and Scouting around the world

h)    know what to do at Investiture.

Once a young person has completed these requirements, and when they feel ready to make their Promise, they can be invested. There is no fixed timescale for this process. You should discuss timing with the young person.
